SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

An important deadline here in Siouxland.

Three groups have submitted applications for the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission's new Woodbury County gaming license.

The one who gets it will be able to operate a new land based casino in Sioux City.

The first two bids you've heard about.

Ho-Chunk Incorporated wants a more than 120-million dollar renovation to the Warrior Hotel.

And Sioux City Entertainment plans an estimated 100-million dollar renovation to the Battery Building, turning it into a Hard Rock.

The third is the current owner of the Argosy, Penn National Gaming.

They've submitted two proposals.

The first would create a 160-million dollar Hollywood Casino in Sioux City.

It would be located on Gordon where the Holiday Inn is now.

Amenities include; a steakhouse, pub and grille.

Plus, a 500 seat event center, and eventually a 150 room hotel.

Their other proposal would create a similar facility south of town.

Called the Hollywood Siouxland casino, the facility would be located near the Port Neal Interchange.

We'll have more coming up tonight at 6.
