Little River Band Of Ottawa Indians Suspends Government Operations

Posted: Updated:

The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians suspended Tribal Government operations Thursday afternoon.

All government offices are closed except public safety/tribal police, utilities department and the department that oversees the casino.

The Little River Casino is also still open.

The suspension of operations pends the adoption of an annual operations budget.

The case will be presented to a Judge this afternoon.

At an emergency meeting this morning, the budget was passed with 11 amendments and is now passed on to the Executive Branch for review.

Normal operations will resume as soon as possible.
