Lincoln, Calif.- The United Auburn Indian Community Tribal Council announced today that Station Casinos, the Tribe’s longtime business partner who has advised and consulted on operational and development issues since 2003, will assume temporary day-to-day management of casino operations for Thunder Valley Casino.
Station Casinos’ role at Thunder Valley will continue to be under the direction of the Tribe’s Business Board and Development Board.
From the customer’s perspective, there will be no noticeable changes and Thunder Valley will continue to be the premier gaming facility in Northern California.
The effects of the current economic downturn and the reassessment of the scope of the Thunder Valley expansion project created the need to engage a seasoned team of managers who have dealt with similar challenges.
Construction of the casino expansion will restart this spring and be completed as scheduled in 2010.
Several managers of Thunder Valley Casino have been terminated or put on administrative leave during the transition.
