West Chicago files decision on overturning video game ban


West Chicago City Council voted on Monday to file two ordinances on licensing and regulating video games. A majority of aldermen voted for the postponement to give West Chicago residents more time to be aware of the pending vote tentatively scheduled for November 1.

When asked if the city should allow video games via a 2018 advisory vote question, a majority of voters said they did not want city council to consider allowing the machines. The city previously banned video games in 2010, but city council debated overturning the ban in recent meetings.

Warrenville’s neighbor recently voted to overturn his city-wide video game ban last month. The village of Downers Grove is also considering revoking its ban on video games.
