April 2019


Coming out of the winter season, we received the thank you letter below from Lt. Brian Gutowski, Manistee County Emergency Management Coordinator, for LRBOI/LRCR providing community emergency assistance during recent storms. Thanks goes out to Melissa Alexander from our Little River Casino Resort for her quick actions. Miigwetch Melissa and the rest of the staff/team; good job! You can read more in the letter located below.

Our Muskegon Casino Project is being held up at the Department of Interior (DOI) level because it was decided to extend the 30 day comment period because of the US Government shutdown that happened earlier this year. Unfortunately, the additional 30 day period has not yet started as of this writing.

Congratulations to our Little River Casino Resort and staff on their 20th Anniversary! They are still going strong and I still receive so many compliments from people and even other tribes on what nice staff we have and what a good job they do. We should all be proud!
Not to get too far ahead of ourselves, but we are just starting to look seriously at a possible expansion of Pharmacy and Clinic services in Muskegon County. Again, this is just a very preliminary look. More information will be given as efforts move forward. This looks very doable.

Our Commodities Department now has a new truck and the ability to make deliveries and are expanding services with plans to build a new warehouse which should start this year.

Our new Elder’s Complex is still on schedule to open later this year, and it is impressive. I want to wish everyone a happy, joyful Spring! Until next month…
