VICKSBURG — By order of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Delta Development & Investments has retained Equity Partners CRB (EP) to find a buyer for its Grand Station Casino barge on the Yazoo River in Vicksburg.
According to EP, many gaming-related machines and tables would be included in the sale.
The court has ordered the accelerated sale of the assets, free and clear of all liabilities. According to sources within Delta Development & Investments, a sale will be scheduled on or about Sept. 30, 2012 (or sooner), subject to court approval, EP reports.
