Oklahoma: New Gov. Stitt should honor Enid City’s wishes on Indian casino denial By Enid News & Eagle Editorial Board December 18, 2018 at 3:18 pm The anti-casino message was strong and swift. With a 5-2 vote Tuesday night, the Enid City Commission rejected an offer to support plans by the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma to build a casino in east-central Enid. The commission also rejected an offer of in-lieu-of-tax payments related to making a few acres of land in the middle of the city a tribal trust, making the casino exempt from local laws and taxes. The vote means the majority of Enid’s city leaders don’t want a casino built in town — or at least not this plan at this location with this financial package.
