ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The new owner of Atlantic City’s former Revel casino got hit with two blows Thursday as a power plant cut off service to the building — and the city said it would fine him for every day that fire suppression systems are without power.
Chris Filiciello, chief of staff for Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian, says the fine amounts are yet undetermined, but they will be several thousand dollars a day.
ACR Energy cut the power after Glenn Straub took over the building. Straub bought Revel on Tuesday but hasn’t been able to reach a deal with ACR to provide utility service there.
Straub is seeking portable generator trucks to power the complex until he can hook it up to another shuttered casino next door that he bought last week.
