SANTA ROSA, CA - The Sonoma county board of supervisors worked out a $100 million deal with the Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo to build a huge new Indian casino resort in the hills above Geyserville. The new casino will be a $300 million Tuscan-style resort to replace the existing River Rock Casino which is housed in a tent-like structure.
Under terms of the agreement the tribe will pay Sonoma County about $75 million as reimbursement for new public services resulting from the casino. These include road improvements, law enforcement, and emergency response services. Another $25 million will be paid from room taxes from the new River Rock hotel. The $100 million will be paid over 12 years.
