SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The mayor of Sioux City says he won't vote on any gambling-related issues as the city considers a new casino.
The Sioux City Journal reports Mayor Bob Scott announced his decision Monday during a City Council meeting. He says it is in response to speculation that he has a financial stake in the development of a new casino. He would not elaborate.
The newspaper reports Scott then abstained from a council vote on a public hearing date to extend a lease for the Argosy Casino riverboat. It's set for Jan. 28
Three developers have proposed land-based casinos that will eventually replace Argosy. The Iowa Racing & Gaming Commission will name the winning proposal in April.
