Video gambling is on the agenda for the Sycamore City Council tonight, a week after DeKalb approved allowing machines in qualifying establishments.
Several bars and fraternal organizations have indicated their interest to City Manager Brian Gregory, while three restaurants and a winery have said they are not interested. Officials have estimated the city could realize almost $100,000 annually from the machines, although Mayor Ken Mundy believes that number is high.
DeKalb County's summer haven from the heat is none other than Ollie's Frozen Custard in Sycamore. The hotspot features tasty treats and a recognizable logo: Ollie, a smiling man with a bowler hat and bushy mustache.
Known most for its creamy custard, Ollie’s has been the post-baseball game favorite since 1985 with the opening of its first store in DeKalb. When space became limited, it moved to Oakland Drive in Sycamore in 1990.
