Beaumont City Council to discuss gaming machine ordinance
BEAUMONT - Beaumont City Council is preparing to review and discuss a proposed gaming machine ordinance for eight liners and other gaming machines.
The item is on the council agenda for a workshop this coming Tuesday.
Beaumont City Councilman Jamie Smith tells KFDM News the city staff has been working with the Beaumont Police Department for some time on proposed rules. The state also has rules governing eight liners. The payout can only be in prizes, not cash, and can't exceed $5 in value.
Critics say game rooms can be havens for gambling, drugs and other crimes.
