[ARCHIVED] Village Board to Discuss Advisory Referendum Question Regarding Video Gaming

News Item Village Logo

At the upcoming Board of Trustees Meeting on December 3, 2020, the Village Board will review and consider the continuation of video gaming in Lombard beyond December 31, 2020.   The Village ordinance that currently permits video gaming in Lombard, was approved on December 5, 2019 and provided that video gaming within the Village will automatically terminate on December 31, 2020, absent further action by the Village Board.  Accordingly, the Village Board will review a proposed ordinance that could remove the existing December 31st sunset clause on video gaming.

The current December 31, 2020 video gaming sunset provision was set to accommodate the placement of a non-binding advisory question on local ballots for the November 3rd General Election.   The General Election advisory question on video gaming resulted in 22,814 total votes cast on the issue, with 11,957 (52.4%) voting to permit video gaming in Lombard and 10,857 (47.5%) against.

The Village Board of Trustees meeting will be held through a virtual meeting platform that will be available to view live at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 3rd, on Comcast Channel 6, AT&T Channel 99, and on the Village’s website at Physical attendance at this meeting will be restricted. If you would like to provide public comment to be read into record, please submit your comment at, email, or leave a voicemail at (630)620-5929. All public comments are limited to 3 minutes. The Village requests that written comments be submitted to the Village by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 3rd.
