Sycamore may add gambling rules
SYCAMORE – The Sycamore City Council will vote to establish local licensing and penalty regulations for video gaming in city bars and fraternal clubs.
The proposed regulations would be in addition to state laws and would require bar owners to submit a layout of the exact locations of the gaming terminals, pay a $100 annual license fee and face penalties of up to $500 if they fail to meet any of the requirements.
An additional requirement, enacted at the request of Alderwoman Janice Tripp, would prohibit anyone younger than 21 from being within 10 feet of the machines. Tripp said she did not want parents sitting with children on their laps as they gambled and believed the city should have a law in writing to discourage the behavior.
