MAYOR VOICES CONCERNS OVER CASINO JOBS

THE IOWA RACING AND GAMING COMMISSION HAS DECIDED TO OPEN UP APPLICATIONS TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BUILD A NEW LAND BASED CASINO IN WOODBURY COUNTY.

MAYOR BOB SCOTT SAYS IT WASN’T TOTALLY UNEXPECTED THAT THE STATE WOULD TRY AND SPEED UP NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN PENN GAMING AND MISSOURI RIVER HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT ON A NEW CONTRACT TO MOVE OPERATIONS FROM THE ARGOSY RIVERBOAT TO A NEW FACILITY:

MAYOR SCOTT SAYS THE CITY HASN’T HEARD FROM PENN GAMING IN NEARLY A MONTH. HE’S CONCERNED ABOUT THE 325 JOBS AT STAKE IF THE RIVERBOAT STOPS OPERATIONS WHEN THE CURRENT OPERATING CONTRACT RUNS OUT.

SCOTT SAYS THAT LAW REQUIRES A MINIMUM OF 60 DAYS NOTICE BEFORE THE JOBS COULD BE TERMINATED.

THERE’S ONE MONTH TO GO BEFORE THE CURRENT OPERATING AGREEMENT ON THE ARGOSY RIVERBOAT CASINO EXPIRES.
