Jones Co. (WDAM)- To borrow a line from a reality show, "the tribe has spoken". The Mississippi band of Choctaw Indians' tribal council voted to move forward today -- with a casino project in Jones county.
The site is near Sandersville on the tribe-owned bogue homa community, one of ten communities comprising the Choctaw reservation. The casino will include 500 to 700 slot machines and a snack bar in a 27-thousand-square-foot building. The casino would employ about 250 people.
