James Ferrera, president of the Springfield, Mass., City Council, petitioned MGM Resorts International and Mayor Domenic Sarno to include in their agreement MGM's minimum investment level in its proposed Springfield casino. Springfield casino consultant Cezar Froelich said the agreement includes such safeguards as construction, building-use and square-footage requirements. "The agreement, as far as we are concerned is fully negotiated, finished and is frankly more protective than this sentence that is proposed," said Froelich.
