Rohnert Park residents discussed with city leaders concerns over the new Graton Casino. Terry McSweeney reports.
Traffic and what to do with the city's new avenue of funding.
Those were some of the main topics Rohnert Park residents brought to the city council Tuesday, a week after the opening of the $800 million Graton Casino.
City officials said good planning ahead of the opening made the best of traffic issues associated with the new casino.
With the initial rush of excitement over, police and fire crews will reduce resources around the casino, which will save the money, officials said.
But there's more good news for the city.
Rohnert Park to date has garnered $2.6 million in revenue since the casino opened its doors last week.
Some residents are suggesting using the funding generated from the casino back into the city's public school system.
