KCK Casino Operators Seek More Time to Build Hotel

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A spokesman says developers of a state-owned casino in Kansas City, Kansas want more time to start building a promised hotel. The Kansas City Star reports that vice president of marketing Dean Doria said Tuesday Hollywood Casino won't be able to break ground on the hotel in February. The casino is at Kansas Speedway. The Kansas Lottery owns the rights to the gambling and receives some profits, but developers built the casino and manage it. They had promised to start building a 250-room hotel within two years of its February 2012 grand opening, or pay financial penalties. Casino officials are scheduled to outline their new plans later this week to the commission of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan.
