Bronson puts bingo on hold

Council says numbers don’t add up

By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

A heated debate Monday night at Bronson Town Hall ended with a 4-1 vote in favor of stalling on an earlier decision to allow a bingo hall within town limits.

“I feel like we should go on,” said Council Member Aaron Edmondson in protest. “It already done been approved.”

But the council disagreed, voting to wait until it had a more complete proposal on the matter.

At the last meeting on Sept. 10, council voted 3-2 in favor of allowing a Bronson food pantry, The Children’s Table, to run a bingo hall to help offset the costs associated with an increased demand for food.  Council members Berlon Weeks and Jason Kennedy voted against the motion, telling The Children’s Table President Bill Brown they thought it might open the doors to other types of gambling, something the council had fought last year with an ordinance after two internet cafes tried to open shop.
