Middleborough Selectmen Vote on Hosting Mashpee Casino

On June 13, 2007, the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe met with the selectmen of Middleborough to talk about building a casino destination resort Middleborough, a town located in the southeastern part of Massachusetts.

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe from Cape Cod presented the local officials of Middleborough with a preliminary agreement in which the town agreed to host the Indian owned casino in exchange for $7 million in total payments to the state by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe annually for the next 10 years.

Under the Federal Regulations, Indian Tribes cannot be taxed by the state government. The $7 million that will be paid by the Middleborough Tribe to the state annually is in exchange for the taxes.

The Federal Recognition for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe became legal last month, which allowed the Mashpee Tribe to proceed with their casino approval application. An approval from the legislature is important if anyone wants to expand their casino gambling activities in the state of Massachusetts.

The representatives of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe are also in the middle of negotiating with the town of New Bedford to build some economic projects in the town.
