Arlington Village Officials Supports Slot Machines At Arlington Park

Slot MachinesThe Arlington Heights Village Board is now in favor of placing slot machines at Arlington Park. The Board indicated Monday that Slots at Arlington Park would be worth the gamble to ensure the continued viability of the racetrack.

Mayor Arlene Mulder read a statement in support of up to 1,200 slot machines at the racetrack at the end of Monday night's village board meeting. When considering proposed gambling expansion, a discussion followed with Trustee Joseph Farwell asking the board schedule a special meeting to adopt a formal resolution either in favor or against the slots so they can send that message to state legislators to use as a guide.


With only trustees Thomas Hayes and Mike Sidor opposed, however, Hayes said he was open to a scaled down slot proposal and Sidor said he wanted to have an open discussion and has lost sleep while considering his position, most of the board came out in favor of slots.

New to the board, Trustee Michael Sidor said he has talked to residents and received mixed responses. Even though he wants the village to prepare for the worst case scenario in case the park does close, he was generally supportive and willing to have a discussion.

Because the discussion was not on the agenda, no formal action was taken at the board meeting. To allow the public to weigh in and discuss the matter further, village board officials said they might call a special meeting for next meeting.
