KESHENA, WI (WTAQ) - As the Menominee Indians await a decision on their proposed Kenosha casino, the tribe will renovate the gaming hall that's on its reservation.  

The tribe broke ground Monday for an $8 million renovation.

Table games and the poker area will be centralized. Older slot machines will be replaced, and the casino's bar and lounge will get bigger.

Also, the casino will try to be more attractive to non-smokers by more efficiently removing tobacco odors.  

The Menominee expect the renovation to be finished by this fall.  

In the meantime, Governor Scott Walker now has until February to decide whether the tribe should get the okay to build its proposed off-reservation casino at Kenosha's former Dairyland Greyhound Park.
