The approval comes after a previous vote in July 2012 that retained the ban on video gambling machines in Oswego.
Nearly a year after the Village of Oswego board voted to uphold a law banning video gambling in the village, video gambling machines will now be permitted in select bars, taverns, restaurants and social businesses. The approval comes from a 4-2 vote in favor of amending the village code regarding a 2009 state law that made it legal for municipalities to have video gambling but allowed individual municipalities to opt out. In July 2012 the Village of Oswego voted 3-2 with one vote of present to not repeal the ban. Village business owners of taverns and bars have been vocal in their support of allowing video gambling in the Village, with representatives from the Oswego Inn and the American Legion telling the Village that they need to be able…

An update on subdivision that are still undergoing first round of removals, new trees to be planted soon.
By now most of Oswego is familiar with the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).
