City Leaders Approve Rules for Gaming Machines



Carbondale city leaders have approved new rules related to gambling machines at local businesses. The rules are limiting the number of machines allowed in town to 100. City records show there are currently 69 gambling machines in town. Carbondale does generate tax revenue from these machines, about $120,000 per year. Despite this revenue city leaders still felt that the presence of too many slot machines will give Carbondale a negative image.
