SHULLSBURG - The proposed Shullsburg casino project is on its way to a full environmental impact study, according Tom Maulson, president of the Lac du Flambeau tribe. Maulson notified Shullsburg mayor Tom Lethlean by letter in mid-March, telling him the Chippewa Indian band is signing an agreement with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Atkins North America, Inc., a design, engineering and project management consulting firm in Minneapolis, by the end of the month, "so that the environmental impact study can commence." Lethlean presented the letter at the city's Common Council meeting March 20.
