The village of Sherman may be ready to cash in its chips and give up on video gaming.
Just a year after authorizing video gambling machines with restrictions at certain establishments, Sherman will hold a special village board meeting Tuesday to consider several ordinances, including two that would immediately prohibit the gaming machines. Those ordinances say the cost of allowing video gaming exceeds any benefits that might come from licensing fees and the village’s share of revenues.
A third ordinance would put a sunset provision on Sherman’s gaming ordinance, causing it to expire next July unless it’s renewed by the village board. That meeting is set for 6pm at the Sherman Village Hall.
