Revere Mayor Dan Rizzo and officials from Suffolk Downs racetrack are set to reopen casino talks this week, seeking to amend an existing casino agreement to reflect a new plan to build a gambling resort entirely in Revere, which both agree would increase the city’s potential windfall.
“It’s obviously going to be a serious uptick from where we were,” said Rizzo. “There’s no question it’s going to be a much richer agreement for the City of Revere.”
The plan to modify the agreement is the surest sign to date that Suffolk Downs is committed to move forward with a casino proposal, despite losing a referendum vote a week ago in adjacent East Boston.
Suffolk Downs will outline its plans to the state gambling commission in writing this week, said Chip Tuttle, the track’s chief operating officer. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
