BREESE CITY COUNCIL APPROVES VIDEO GAMBLING ORDINANCE

The Breese City Council recently approved an ordinance allowing video gambling in certain establishments.  Breese Mayor Charlie Hilmes said the ordinance basically allows video gambling within the city of Breese.  He went on to say they found out that many years ago there was an ordinance restricting any kind of gambling, including bingo.  He said he did not know if people simply ignored the ordinance but during his time in office there has always been bingo.  It was something that needed to be changed and updated.  After discussing the issue with the council members and members of the community, they came to the conclusion that the people of Breese were not opposed to having video gambling in certain establishments.  Establishments where licensed alcohol consumption is permitted will now also be able to have video gambling.
