ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The board charged with selecting the location of up to four upstate casinos in New York is asking the public to weigh in.

The state’s Gaming Facility Location Board plans to hold a public hearing Monday in Albany. Additional public comment events are scheduled for Tuesday in Poughkeepsie and Wednesday in Ithaca.

All three hearings begin at 8 a.m. and will conclude at 8 p.m.

Developers who have submitted applications for casino licenses are required to attend but may not address the board.

Up to four casino licenses set to be awarded for three different upstate regions. The licenses will be divided among the Albany-Saratoga area, the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region and the Catskills and mid-Hudson Valley.

The board is expected to announce its recommendations this fall.
