Thursday, October 9, 2003

The Delaware Tribe and the town of Dewey entered into an agreement to start a travel plaza, a hotel and restaurant.

The development would take place on 17 acres the town owns. The tribe has the option of buying the land for $175,000 or leasing the land with the intent to take it into trust.

The town would collect taxes on the businesses. If the land is taken into trust, the tribe would pay for the cost of police and fire services.
