What has gotten into our politicians allowing way too many Game rooms in Falfurrias? These so called businesses don't contribute to the town. All they do is disable the already "disadvantaged"citiz ens by squeezing every spare change that they have. How can't you politicians, including the County Judge, see what you are allowing to take place? You all have no allegiance to your constituents when it comes to bringing in good businesses into the community instead you allow fly by night thievery to take precedence over businesses where citizens can work for a living. You need to recruit honest businesses that will empower the citizens to also contribute to their well being as these game rooms break them & they have to search for hand outs to pay for their bills.

THE GAMEROOMS HAVE TO PAY TAXES EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS. YOU PAY TAXES ON HOW MANY MACHINES YOU HAVE. SOME GAMEROOMS PAY UP TO $3,000 IN A 3 OR 4 MONTH PERIOD. AND IF PEOPLE WANT TO GAMBLE AWAY THERE MONEY WHO ARE YOU TO STOP THEM. I FOR ONE DONT LIKE GAMBLING BUT I DONT LOOK DOWN ON PEOPLE WHO DO. SHAME ON YOU, WHAT MAKES YOU BETTER?
whatever

It's funny how game rooms are all shut down in Nueces & the Valley but not in good ole Fal. with one of the highest unemployed, dropouts, people on Medicaid & other freebies for a town it's size. You should care instead of defending people gambling away their government checks and the game rooms who just love taking it from them.It is still illegal you ignorant people.

If Fal is a money making town; businesses will show up on their own; u don't need to recruit them; they don't come to FAL because the businesses know there's no money here, look at how many broken down; abandoned buildings are in FAL; if out of towners were to drive thru FAL; they would think this is a poor town and not worth investing into.

Are yall listening to yourself? In Texas it is illegal!!! No matter about paying taxes or what, it is not a Bingo Hall its an illegal gambling room. I have called about 7 times about one in Austin and they are still open. Cant figure it out. People are losing their money and police say we will check on it but they really dont. I hate seeing these people, that cant even speak english lose all their money. Either its legal or not!!! What is it Austin Police dept.

they pay for permits to the city and the owners pays taxes so don't say shit if you don't know anything at least they work as supposed to most people just sitting back and wait for their checks every month which comes from their tax dollars and why would the austin police care it's not their jurisdiction dumbass

I think a lot of these game room owners know how to get a business going and in my opinion someone should start a flea market like the Corpus Christi Trade Center..a lot of people here in Falfurrias sell really good stuff on the side like purses, jewelry, cosmetics, beef jerky, menudo, flowers, decor filled balloons, just different stuff I've seen...everyone has a talent..why not open up a place that'll both create jobs and add business to Falfurrias????

Don't hate them cause they got money n u don't, besides its their business where n how they spend their money! 3rd its NOT ILLEGAL to have a Game room! Don't u have something better to do then check on game rooms to see if they r open or not? U can't figure Out cause U R an IGNORANT!

To many lazy people they are used to living off the government. It will never happen. They rather collect from the government than work on their own. Trust me.

That's not true! I've seen people working out of their cars and homes even on the weekends when you would think they would want to be "lazy" so let's not judge... you know something it is people like you that do not allow growth in Falfurrias, because you are so quick to shut down any ideas that could help our community but yet you sit here and judge something as petty as why there are so many gamerooms.. get a life!
