BARSTOW • City officials will travel to Sacramento to attend meetings with Gov. Jerry Brown’s office and the Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indian Tribe on July 2 to continue discussions about the Barstow Casino Project.

Efforts to open a casino in Barstow have been ongoing for more than 10 years. City officials declined to discuss details of the upcoming meeting.

The Barstow City Council approved $400 in travel funds for Mayor Julie Hackbarth-McIntyre and Mayor Pro Tem Tim Silva at Monday’s council meeting. Barstow City Manager Curt Mitchell and Assistant City Manager Oliver Chi will also be participating in the trip, according to the agenda notes.

The casino would be located near the Lenwood Road exit of Interstate 15, just south of the city.
