A public hearing will be held next week to discuss the license of Sioux City's Argosy Casino

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - A public hearing will be held next week to discuss the license of Sioux City's Argosy Casino.

The hearing will deal with the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission's decision to deny the renewal of the Argosy's license.

In March of 2012, the IRGC granted renewed the Argosy's license under the condition that the Argosy's owner, Penn National Gaming, successfully renegotiate a contract with its non-profit partner, Missouri River Historical Development.

Those negotiations were unsuccessful, and the IRGC opened up bidding for Sioux City's gaming license in June of 2012.

In April of 2013, that license was granted to MRHD, Sioux City Entertainment, and the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

A hearing on the IRGC's denial of the Argosy's license renewal will take place next Wednesday, March fifth, at Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Altoona, Iowa.

We'll have the updates for you from that hearing.
