As far as construction goes, the Montreign Casino is on time and on budget.

So Montreign Vice President Charles Degliomini says it's time to think jobs.

"We're basically a mini city," he said. "We have jobs that are maintenance jobs; we have IT jobs; we have finance jobs; we have accounting jobs; we have clerical jobs; we have executive-type jobs."

Degliomini says having SUNY Sullivan hold information sessions to train people to fill those jobs is important. And according to Cindy Kashan, director of college outreach, the school is happy to oblige.

"If a student wanted to come in and take two one-year certificate programs, they'll be nicely set up and ready to go to be interviewed when Montreign is ready to open," Kashan said.

Attendees, meanwhile, say they're excited for the opportunity.

Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther showed up to get a first-hand look at the opportunities that will be available for her constituents.

"Not only will it impact Sullivan County, but Orange and Ulster County," Gunther said. "It's got a large catchment area. Some great jobs, and we are all excited to be here."

The casino is slated to open in March 2018.
