Local Politicians Request Delay of Atlantic City Casino Closures

It’s a long shot, but somebody is trying.

 

According to The Press of Atlantic City, ‘Local politicians sent a letter Tuesday to the chairman of the Casino Control Commission requesting that the agency delay by months the planned closures of the Showboat and Trump Plaza casinos.’

 

Obviously, this would keep people working, and hopefully give the city more time for someone to buy one of the properties.

 

Showboat is planning to close on Aug 31, while Trump Plaza is scheduled to shut it’s doors on Sept. 16.   The letter states that there isn’t enough time “for potential buyers to do the appropriate research that acquisition of either property may require,”

 

Is this too late? Or, can this give the city a little bit of hope?
