Sycamore hedges video gaming bet
SYCAMORE – The Sycamore City Council was split Monday on allowing video gambling in the city before deciding to address the issue at a later date.
Aldermen Greg Taylor, Pete Paulsen, Janice Tripp and Rick Kramer supported overturning the city’s ban on video gambling. Aldermen Alan Bauer, Gary Waight, Chuck Stowe and Steve Braser were cool to the idea and wanted to put off the decision to see how it affects other communities first.
The video gaming machines are expected to go live as early as August after years of delay after the state’s approval of the gambling terminals in 2009 to fund a $31 billion capital construction program.
