Mayor says city support isn't official for Hard Rock Casino

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Sioux City Mayor Bob Scott says he's excited about the project that could bring a Hard Rock Casino to downtown Sioux City.

Scott says he likes the proposal because it renovates a historical building. That's something Scott says the city has been focusing on.

But, the Mayor says the City hasn't officially endorsed the plan yet. He says they have other options like Ho-Chunk Incorporated.

Scott says they'll bide their time for the public's sake. "The good news for the council is we don't have to decide right now. We ought to let citizens have a lot of input into this," said Sioux City Mayor Bob Scott.

Ho-Chunk is the Economic Development Corporation, owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. They announced a proposal in August that would also create a $100-million facility.
