Barstow City Council amends casino agreement to remove tribe's development partner

The Barstow City Council on Monday approved a revised municipal services agreement with a Native American tribe that plans to acquire land, and build a casino and resort near The Outlets at Barstow. City Manager Nikki Salas said the amended agreement with the Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians only removes their former development partner, Barwest.
