Sycamore gambling will hit or bust today
SYCAMORE – Final decisions on video gambling in Sycamore and an increase to the mayor’s salary are expected at today’s City Council meeting.
After months of discussion and a public hearing two weeks ago, council members likely will vote on whether gambling should be legal in city bars and fraternal organizations – potentially adding tens of thousands of dollars to Sycamore’s annual revenue.
While the city stands to make roughly $99,000 a year if bar participation is great enough and the state holds true to its revenue-sharing formula, the majority of residents at a Sept. 17 public hearing spoke against the expansion.
