Davenport’s Mayor is still angered over a secret meeting to discuss the sale of the President Riverboat Casino.Some council members met behind closed doors with the director of the riverboat authority last week. They apparently talked about the pending sale of the President to the Isle of Capri Corporation, which already owns the Bettendorf riverboat. Mayor Phil Yerrington says the meeting was “a stupid thing to do.” Reporters have questioned the legality of the meeting based on Iowa’s open meetings law. Yerrington says they’re deliberately leaving him “out of the loop.” Yerrington says he’s still going to work to do what’s best for the city — and won’t let aldermen who don’t understand the rules get in the way of progress.
