Voters in another northern Iowa county have decided they want gambling, if state regulators decide to greenlight the idea. Franklin County voters okayed the excursion boat gambling referendum on Tuesday 53-to-47 percent. Almost 40-percent of voters turned out for the special election. The proposed riverboat gambling facility would be located off Highway 3 just west of Interstate 35. It would include a hotel, restaurant, convention center, R-V park and casino. Franklin County joins Black Hawk, Palo Alto, Wapello and Worth counties in approving riverboat gambling.
