Bronson bingo still up in the air

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

It’s still unclear if a local hunger activist will open a bingo hall in Bronson. 

Who heard, said, wrote or read what are all playing a part in how locals perceive the issue and, ultimately, how it’s decided by town officials, according to comments at Monday night’s Bronson Town Council meeting.

Bill Brown, founder of The Children’s Table, an organization that helps feed thousands of Levy County residents each month, has been seeking to open a bingo hall in his establishment to help pay for the ever-rising costs of feeding the needy. 

When the issue was first brought before council on Sept. 10, Brown was given a green light to proceed. Only council members Berlon Weeks and Jason Kennedy opposed the motion, stating they thought because it was a form of gambling it might open the doors to internet cafes within town limits, a prospect vehemently opposed by the council in a new ordinance last year.
