Carlisle Borough won’t be home to a casino.
According to our news exchange partners The Sentinel, Mayor Tim Scott announced at a meeting Thursday night that most borough council members were opposed to the plan.
Last week, a Philadelphia area casino company pitched their plan to bring a casino to the community. Leaders at the company said it would create 250 permanent jobs.
There was a lot of pushback from members of the community who were concerned that the borough would lose it’s charm if a casino opens.
Carlisle already opted out of a mini-casino but can still can change its mind.
