High water may cause a delay in the removal of the Argosy riverboat casino. The
closed casino is located on the Sioux City waterfront on the Missouri River.
The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission forced the casino to close in July. The
reason behind the closure was based on Iowa law. Casinos must partner with local
nonprofit group that is licensed by the state.
The Argosy must be removed by September 28 or be forced to pay the city.
However, the river has risen so high that the boat will not fit under bridges.
If the casino is not removed by the deadline the owners must pay $7,500 each
month until it is removed.
Currently there are no dedicated plans on what will replace the casino site.
