Council OK’s City Wide Gaming

The Greenville City Council gave the OK for city-wide gaming at their meeting this week. After a short discussion, Councilman Kenny Hampton made the motion to lift the geographical restrictions on gaming.

Hampton’s motion also put the same signage restrictions on gaming that are in place concerning alcohol sales on the city square. The restrictions mean gaming signs must be placed so they are not visible from the street. Right now there are no liquor licenses on the square and a liquor license is a pre-requisite to video gaming.

The final vote was 4-1 to allow video gaming throughout the city. Councilman John Gillard was the lone “no” vote.
