The Crystal Lake City Council discussed the possibility of video gaming being allowed in town.
An argument was made that video gaming would bring in revenue and create jobs, but most council members shot it down, including Mayor Aaron Shepley.
“Let’s call it what it is,” Shepley said. “It’s gambling, period. Not ‘video gaming.’ … It preys on the weak, on people who are down on their luck.”
This comes on the heels of city council rejecting a proposal for a pawn shop in town.
