Video gambling will continue for now in Sherman, but village officials are still prepared to pull the plug if the machines become more trouble than they’re worth.
The Sherman village board had considered an ordinance to repeal video gaming… after one vendor had complained about the licensing fees charged by the village and hinted at possible legal action.
But instead the board unanimously voted to place a sunset provision on its video gaming law.
It will now expire on June 30, 2014 unless it is reauthorized by the village board.
Two Sherman establishments have received state video gaming licenses, and two more are pending.
