A public-private partnership at the Lake Worth Casino complex, proposed by one of the owners of the historic Sundy House in Delray Beach, has been rejected by the City Commission.
    “We are not going to accept any more proposals until we can identify what the financial, operational and physical issues are” at the casino complex, Commissioner Scott Maxwell proposed on Oct. 20. The other four commissioners agreed.
    Steven Michael, principal of Delray Beach-based Hudson Holdings, said he wanted the city to act on the latest offer. His company is still moving forward with renovation plans for the historic Gulfstream Hotel in Lake Worth.
    The city’s Historic Resources Preservation Board will hear a rezoning request Nov. 18 to tie together the parcels that contain the Gulfstream Hotel and another proposed hotel. The proposal would then go before the City Commission in December for a first reading and then in January for a second reading.
    Michael hopes the city will ask soon for proposals for the casino complex.
