NO LOCAL GROUP IS LOOKING FORWARD MORE TO THE AUGUST 1ST OPENING OF SIOUX CITY’S HARD ROCK CASINO THAN MISSOURI RIVER HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT.

MARK MONSON, PRESIDENT OF THE NON PROFIT LICENSE HOLDER OF THE CASINO, SAYS MRHD WILL BE SOON ABLE TO START AWARDING GRANTS TO WOODBURY COUNTY AGENCIES AGAIN WHEN THE HARD ROCK OPENS:


OC… COUNTY GROWS. ;19

MRHD NORMALLY RECEIVES A PERCENTAGE OF CASINO REVENUES AS LICENSE HOLDER, BUT THEIR FORMER PARTNER, THE ARGOSY RIVERBOAT CASINO, STOPPED PAYING MRHD FUNDS SEVERAL MONTHS AGO.

THAT MONEY IS BEING HELD BY THE ARGOSY AND THEIR PARENT COMPANY, PENN NATIONAL GAMING, IN A SEPARATE ACCOUNT.

THE ARGOSY CASINO HAS ALSO FILED FOR CHAPTER 11 BANKRUPTCY.
