Oneida Tribe offered money to back planned Kenosha Casino

CREATED Nov. 9, 2013

 MILWAUKEE -- The Onieda tribe would collect $3 million in banking fees for supporting the planned Menomonee casino, according a new agreement released by the tribes.

The agreement - reported by the Green Bay Press-Gazette - would allow for the Onieda to get the first chance in financing the first phase of the proposed Hard Rock joint venture in Kenosha. 

In return, the Menomonee tribe would not advertise their new casino in any market north of Milwaukee. It would also refrain from radio, billboard, and print ads in the markets around Appleton and Green Bay. 

The Onedia tribe would agree to give ATM and cash advance services inside the casino.

The agreement was signed on October 17th, the same day the Onedia tribe endorsed the Menomonee's plans for a new casino.
