SC Mayor "done negotiating" casino contract

Posted:

Sioux City's mayor, Bob Scott, says he's "done negotiating with Penn National."

He says the plan they've proposed will generate less revenue for the city in the long run. Scott says unless the company can make some changes, he'd like to see the boat stay put.

"It makes no economic sense for the city to enter into this agreement. We'd be better off as a city, purely from a finical standpoint, we'd be much better off to leave it on the boat," said Scott. 

Scott skipped the city's annual Washington D.C. Conference lobbying trip to discuss the contract with the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission Thursday.
