City sets date for election on Mashpee Wampanoag casino

The city of Taunton, Massachusetts, scheduled a June 9 election on the casino proposed by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe.

The tribe is paying $40,000 to cover the cost of the election. The tribe is also providing $300,000 to the city so the two parties can negotiate a casino agreement.

The tribe plans to build a casino on 77 acres in Taunton. The site has been included in the tribe's land-into-trust application.
