Coal City voters approve video gaming referendum
63 percent of voters vote 'Yes'
COAL CITY, Ill. — Coal City voters approved a referendum at the polls Tuesday to allow video gambling machines in village establishments that serve alcohol.
Just over 1,400 residents, or 63.55 percent of voters, voted yes on the non-binding referendum, while 812, or 36.45 percent, voted no.
The referendum stemmed from the village board's summer discussion of the topic, which was brought up when the Illinois Gaming Board approached the village at the opening of the application process for establishments.
