UPDATE: Governor's current location in Bettendorf will close and is set to be replaced by a Hy-Vee convenience store. The good news is that Gov's will remain open in a new location.

Read here for more details:

When the Bettendorf Planning and Zoning Commission meets this week, it will more than likely mark the end of the long time public house and prime meeting spot.

The meeting tomorrow will put in motion the property owner's plans to replace Governor's at Middle and Devils Glen. Looking over the minutes from the Planning and Zoning Commission's meeting in May gives us an idea of things to come.

Beck explained that if the concept which includes a convenience store with gas pumps is chosen, the parent company of Hy-Vee would be involved and could allow their customers to access the proposed development via their existing commercial development and possibly to Middle Road.

Signs point to a new Hy-Vee Gas location replacing the long-time restaurant. We won't know for sure until after Wednesday's meeting. But from hearsay and rumors, it doesn't look good for Gov's.

Hopefully they don't close their doors and just relocate. I better grab another Guinness there while I still can.
