The Milford Board of Selectmen signed a host agreement with Foxwoods Monday night and set an election for Nov. 19, when residents will decide whether plans for a $1 billion resort casino will move forward. The 2-to-1 vote, with chairman William Buckley opposed, formalized an agreement that would bring the town more than $30 million a year, 3,500 permanent jobs, and an initial mitigation payment of $32.1 million. If voters approve the agreement, a Special Town Meeting would still have to rezone the land at the junction of Interstate 495 and Route 16 in the eastern corner of town before the Foxwoods application for the lone casino license in Greater Boston is complete.
