The St. Tammany Parish Council has voted to call a special election for voters to consider allowing a casino complex in St. Tammany Parish.
“From the beginning, I have expressed my desire for the voters of St. Tammany to decide the future of a gaming and entertainment venue at a specific location on Lake Pontchartrain in Eastern St. Tammany,” said Parish President Mike Cooper. “I appreciate the interest from Peninsula Pacific Entertainment to invest into our community, and I look forward to seeing more information provided in the coming months on how the casino could benefit Slidell and all of St. Tammany.”
The Council’s Resolution, which was decided 8-6, will allow the people of St. Tammany the ability to decide whether or not they want a casino in St. Tammany Parish.
The Special Election will be held on Saturday, November 13, 2021.
