what a bright idea. FP isn't ghetto enough, lets turn it into mini-Vegas so we can have more deliquents, addicts, homeless and prostitutes roaming the streets. all that money people will throw away on these machines would be better spent on local businesses. BAD IDEA

The money will be spent at local business also it is not a FP idea it is a State of Illinois idea, Call Skip with you thoughts.

It's video poker machines.. It's not like they're opening up a new casino. It's not going to attract any new people to Franklin Park. All it's going to do is take more money from those who frequent the local bars. It will amount to another sin tax.. BTW it's not like these bars don't pay up under the table anyhow.. Either way it really doesn't matter..

All the local bars will have the machines in all the subs so people will not flock to FP to play a video machine when they can go down the street to the casino.
Complainers just looking for something to complain about....now stop.

i dont care if other suburbs allow it, we're talking about this town,would you jump off a cliff if everyone else did too? what a stupid reply..

those of you who want to open the floodgates by allowing gambling- just don't complain years from now when the Chicago Mob and other bad elements make their presence known,gambling is a vice, it destoys lives, spreads corruption - look at Vegas crime statistics and all the trash that fill the city outside the fancy hotels, it is bad influence on society

Boo Hoo, now you do not care what other subs are doing but when it fits you to complain then you post we can't have that Rosemont has it or we can't have that Northlake has it or we can't have that Melrose Park has it. Stop your complaining put your big boy pants on and get with it. Drinking is also a vice should be close all the bars? Nobody is making you or anyone do something they do not want to do so if you do not want to play the video machines then don't.
I have no interest in playing them but it does not bother me what someone else does. Times are changing we now have cable TV and cell phones, I Pods and lap top computers.

Yes , some bars should be closed and converted into hash bars.You'd generate a lotsmore revenue.

The number of alcohol licences should be reduced. Licences should be be allowed to expire and not renewed, especially along the major highways. Local bars, OK.

Lots more revenue? How so when you create a culture of dopes?
