MADISON — Nearly 30 residents showed up Monday to the Bristol Village Board meeting with fliers in hand and lots of questions on their minds about a fast-moving land sale that could bring a casino to the Kenosha County community’s back yard.
They’re most concerned about what they say has been a lack of transparency, with the public kept in the dark until the board inked a rushed letter of intent with a gag order.
“The agenda was vague, and there was no public comment section on the agenda. Details of the potential buyers of the land were not disclosed until records were requested,” said Danielle Whitaker, one of more than two dozen at the meeting with misgivings about the land deal.
