SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Sioux City officials will hold a public meeting next month to discuss the development of the former Argosy riverboat casino site.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1WQLwOB ) that the meeting will begin at 7 p.m. March 8 in the council chambers at City Hall.

City staff will receive suggestions on use of the city-owned property on Sioux City’s riverfront.

In October, the city hired a Madison, Wisconsin firm to develop a master plan for the area.

The Argosy closed in 2014, displaced by the $128 million Hard Rock Casino that opened in downtown Sioux City. The riverboat casino has since been removed and sold to an Illinois shipyard.
