RENSSELAER - People in the City of Rensselaer will hear details Thursday night about a casino planned on its river bank.

Mayor Dan Dwyer and the city council will meet at 7 p.m. at city hall to hear from Global Gaming about plans to build a casino at DeLaet’s Landing.

The mayor says that location is perfect because it's within walking distance of the Amtrak train station, and it has a great view of the Albany skyline.

Those in favor of putting a casino there say it would pump millions of dollars into the city.
