Sherman’s brief experiment with video gaming could come to an abrupt end.
The village board will hold a special meeting this evening to discuss whether to repeal its ordinance allowing local establishments to install and operate the gambling machines.
One Sherman bar has installed the gaming devices, but village officials say the company that provided the machines objected to Sherman’s license fees and threatened legal action.
The board will consider three ordinances at tonight’s meeting, two of which would immediately halt video gaming and another which would set an expiration date of next July.
The ordinances say the cost of allowing video gaming exceeds any benefits the village might receive.
