AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Stephanie Enasko and Marilyn Workman sat on a bench outside the new Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course, the first ones -- although not the only ones for long -- waiting to enter the racino when its doors opened in a few hours.
“I’ve been to a lot of casinos” -- Mountaineer Casino in West Virginia about once a month, the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh and Cleveland’s Horseshoe -- “but I’ve never been to a grand opening, which I was really looking forward to,” said Enasko, of Warren.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The board of trustees of the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County selected Hudson Construction Inc. of Hermitage, Pa., as general contractor for the new Canfield Branch Library at its meeting Thursday.
Hudson submitted a bid of $3.1 million for the new library. It will be built on the site of the current building, which will close at the end of business Sept. 20 so that the building can be emptied in preparation for construction.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- From executives who need to schedule space for company meetings or a corporate event to individuals looking to book a hall for a wedding or other family functions, options for local venues abound.
AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Constructing the Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course was not “smooth sailing all the time,” general manager Mike Galle concedes. “Anytime you’re in construction sometimes timelines get delayed.”
But even with those “bumps in the road,” Turner Construction Co., Cleveland, construction manager for the racino project, and laborers “did a great job” of finishing the 100,000-square-foot project ahead of schedule, allowing an earlier opening date than the planned October start, he said.
