Rock Falls City Council clears way for gaming machines
Money raised – maybe $25,000 a year – will pay for infrastructure work, mayor says
ROCK FALLS – The City Council agreed Tuesday night to allow video gaming machines in bars and restaurants.
The gambling ordinance first made the council agenda in 2009, when the state passed the Video Gaming Act. Designed to raise money for infrastructure projects such as road and bridge work, the act was held up by a lawsuit that’s recently been settled, and now the state plans to implement it.
Many municipalities, including Dixon, now are considering whether to allow the machines.
