Algonquin bets placed on hold
ALGONQUIN – Businesses that have asked the village to allow video gambling are frustrated about a six-month trial period the village is undertaking to see how other communities handle video gaming.
Nero’s Pizza & Pub owner Ken Fishleigh, who spoke for a handful of businesses present at last week’s Village Board meeting, said bars and restaurants want trustees to establish rules for video gambling sooner rather than later.
“Many of these places have applied for permits to have the gaming machines. Now it’s up and running with the state,” Fishleigh said. “We’re concerned we’re going to get left out. We haven’t heard anything from the village in regards to what are we doing as far as setting up the conditions.”
