Clarendon Hills’ village president and two other village trustees said they are open to allowing video gaming in town, but will need to get one more trustee on their side to defeat a proposed video-gaming ban next month.
The Village Board at its Monday night meeting split a first-consideration vote on the gaming-ban ordinance, 3-3. Village President Tom Karaba and trustees Paul Flood and Steve Wallace voted against the ban; Paul Pedersen, Ed Reid and Mary Williams voted for it.
Absent Monday was trustee Allan Alongi, who didn’t make any definitive statements about his position on the ban during the Aug. 6 meeting.
The first consideration vote is an advisory vote only; the final vote will be taken on Sept. 4.
