A ceremonial beam signing was held Friday on the future site of Lago Resort & Casino in Tyre. Attending were several hundred people that included Lago Resort & Casino Co-Chairmen Thomas Wilmot Sr. and Brent Stevens, Tyre and Seneca County officials, Finger Lakes region labor and business leaders and others from the public. When open, the casino will feature 2,000 slot machines and 85 gaming tables. Lago Resort & Casino developers expect the project to create 1,800 construction jobs and 1,800 permanent jobs.
