The debate over the proposed Wynn casino in Everett got even more heated this week with casino mogul Steve Wynn and Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone making some pointed remarks about each other.
Wynn visited Medford Tuesday and said his $2 billion "Wynn Boston Harbor" project will go forward, despite an environmental challenge filed by Mayor Curtatone. In fact, Wynn said, he will not pay Somerville to settle because an arbitrator has already decided how much the city will get to help offset the effects of his casino.
"We're done paying," said Wynn. "Zero. The chances of the mayor of Somerville getting any extra money for us is zero."
