Wynn Resorts Pays Mitigation

Though it came three weeks late, City officials confirmed this week that Wynn Resorts had paid its first-ever quarterly mitigation payment, which is required under the Host Community Agreement.

Last week, the Independent reported that Wynn Resorts was more than three weeks late on its payment of approximately $6.8 million to the City. Wynn officials, when contacted about it, said they would have it paid in full by the end of business on Tuesday last week. City officials confirmed the full payment was received.

The next quarterly payment from the resort casino is due on Dec. 31.
