ATLANTIC CITY – Gov. Christie on Wednesday is expected to unveil sweeping plans for a state takeover of the Atlantic City district that encompasses its casinos, beaches, marina, and Boardwalk.
Under the proposal, devised by an advisory commission created by Christie, the state would strip the city of its control of municipal functions around the casinos, such as police and garbage pickup, the Star-Ledger of Newark reported late Tuesday afternoon.
The commission’s report, described by the Star-Ledger, calls for the creation of a new authority to take over the Atlantic City casino district, and in effect become a separate government within Atlantic City.
