Alexandria lifts moratorium on new bingo halls

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - The public will get more places to play bingo in Alexandria after the city council temporarily lifted a moratorium on new bingo halls.

The Town Talk reports (http://townta.lk/1rRv58s) the moratorium was lifted by resolution during Tuesday's regular council meeting. There was no discussion during that meeting, but the bingo issue was debated for more than an hour in the Finance and Legal Affairs Committee meeting that preceded the regular meeting.

Lifting the moratorium means that new bingo sites can be established within a 120-day period by meeting regulations and permitting requirements. After that 120-day period, a moratorium would be put back into place.
