LISLE – At Monday's Village Board meeting, Jerri Nolan of Raymes Steak & Fish House spoke to the board about bringing video gambling to Lisle.

The board discussed gaming at a meeting in June and voted to address it further at its meeting Aug. 4.

Nolan said she spoke on behalf of herself, as well as Lisle businesses including Hilton Lisle-Naperville, Hyatt Lisle, Sheraton Lisle Hotel, Evviva, Wheatstack, Bono's Pub, Pizzeria Bombola, Country House and Ross Bishop Lisle VFW Post 5696.

“We're very pro-gaming,” she said. “It's something that our neighbors won't have.”

Nolan said bringing video gambling to the village would give hotels an advantage, adding that she also operates a business that offers gaming in Oswego and has seen first-hand the difference it makes.

“We definitely appreciate the input,” said trustee Brad Hettich. “We want village feedback.”
