WOODHULL -A request from Pilot Travel Plaza to offer video gaming never got off the floor at Monday's village board meeting.
The village attorney had an ordinance prepared in case the board approved the request, but a motion "died for a lack of a second," Mayor Dave Holmes said, adding it could come before the board at another time.
"I kind of hate to see it," Trustee Lloyd Carlson, a former mayor, said.
"It's primarily for the truck drivers and travelers," Trustee Connie Vail said. "Pilot is a successful conglomerate. It could mean a lot of revenue for the village, and if they make money, the village will too."
In other business, the board:
- Heard from Trustee Vail that a large crowd turned out for dedication of the new Veteran's Memorial on Veteran's Day.
She said donations for memorial are approaching $40,000 with expenses in excess of $38,000, though some bills have not been received.
- Learned thatsales tax has increased significantly to $162,000 per year.
- Noted an increase in water rates may be necessary after a sewer improvement project.
