Raynham

Contracted awarded for slot parlor study

Continue reading below

The Raynham Board of Selectmen awarded a contract last Tuesday to B and S Consulting of Connecticut to study how a slot parlor at Raynham Park would affect the town. Consultants Robert Birmingham and David Schweid, both previously employed as planners for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, said they partnered informally to do consulting. Both have worked in municipal planning; Schweid is a part-time town planner in Exeter, Rhode Island, and Birmingham is now a real estate agent. Town Administrator Randall Buckner said the contract went to the lowest of three bids, at $61,550. The study will examine the effect on traffic and municipal services from Raynham Park’s proposal for 1,250 slot machines. The former dog track and its business partner are competing with other developers for the state’s only slots license. Hundreds of track workers were laid off after a state ban on live dog racing took effect in 2010, but the track still simulcasts dog and horse races.
