The Investigations and Enforcement Bureau will then lead a series of discussions covering: a request from Encore Boston Harbor for amendment to its beverage license, a review of the IEB’s recommendation of assessment of a civil administrative penalty, an update on the IEB’s review of potential noncompliance, and security at casino facilities. That last discussion item will precede an anticipated Executive Session on the matter.

Commissioner Updates are expected to follow, rounding out the meeting.

There is time reserved at the end of the meeting for any other business the Chair did not reasonably anticipate at the time of posting.
