SCHOHARIE N.Y. – Owners of Howe Caverns, located in Schoharie County, have expressed interest in landing a Las Vegas style casino.

Last month the Schoharie county board of supervisors passed a resolution against casinos, but is now saying they will reconsider.

The manager of this tourist attraction says it may be a little too late to express interest, but according to the manager, the debates in Saratoga County have opened a window. Earlier this month, Saratoga's City Council voted no to casino gambling expansion in the Spa City.

The state plans to build a total of seven Las Vegas style casinos, four of them being in Upstate New York.

Owners at Howe Caverns say they will remain a family destination, having a casino would just be a great addition and benefit the surrounding area.

The manager of Howe Caverns is expected to present his casino plan to the board of supervisors Friday morning, it is then up to the board to vote on approval.
