EAST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The East Hartford Town Council voted on Tuesday night to allow the mayor to submit a proposal to build a casino in town.

The developer wants to build the casino on the site of the old Showcase Cinemas, which has been vacant for nearly one decade.

Several towns across the state have been competing to play host to the state’s newest casino.

No final decision has been made at this point.
