Gaming commissioner to Clark County Commission: Law is clear on Dotty’s and slots must be “incidental”

So said Gaming Commissioner Randolph Townsend in a letter he delivered to county commissioners today -- less than a week before the board members will consider efforts to limit the proliferation of "Dotty's" across the valley. Townsend made it clear at last week's commission meeting, after approving three more Dotty's-type establishments, that he will do so no more until the issue is resolved. But his missive to the commission indicates he believes the regulation needs to be strictly enforced -- a clear signal that he believes the county (and, perhaps, the state) should restrict the growth.

The commissioners also have received highlights of that commission meeting from Nevada Resort Association lobbyist Billy Vassiliadis.

I have posted both letters below and will have a column on this provocative subject in the Sun on Friday.
