Walker’s Bluff Casino Given Green Light by Williamson County Board

WILLIAMSON CO. – The Williamson County Board gave unanimous approval of the Walker’s Bluff Casino and Resort on Monday night, finalizing the Host Community Agreement.

According to WSIL-TV, Board Chairman Jim Marlo said “The Host Community Agreement shows who the players are in bringing the casino, how we’re going to bring in the casino, who’s involved, who’s the developer going to be and everything else…”

If approved by the Illinois Gaming Board, the project as a whole projects to bring hundreds of jobs, both temporary and permanent to southern Illinois. Once given the go-ahead, Walker’s Bluff expects to break ground in the fall.
