The Riverboat Development Authority Board will meet Friday and get a recommendation for a land-based casino developer from a task force that reviewed six proposals.

The meeting will be at 1 p.m. at Keppy Building at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, 2815 W. Locust St., Davenport. The RDA task force that reviewed the proposals received six, with four developers following up after further information was requested.

A recommendation will be made to the board identifying a developer to go into further negotiations, RDA Chairman Gary Mohr said. He was uncertain if the board would vote immediately on the recommendation or ask for more time.

Although information from all the developers will be available at the meeting, they won't all be identified.
