Mundelein looks to hike fees on video gambling machines

Mundelein’s fees for video gambling are among the lowest in the northwest suburbs, but they could soon be among the highest.

Currently, Mundelein charges a $250 application fee and if accepted a $50 video gambling business license fee along with a $150 fee to register each individual machine. All restaurants with video gaming have at least five machines.

Trustees on Oct. 1 decided to increase the $150 per machine fee to $1,000 per machine. A revision to the ordinance is being prepared for a future vote some time before the annual May 1 application deadline, according to Village Administrator John Lobaito.

The idea to hike the fee was proposed during Mundelein’s annual strategic planning committee meeting, which normally occurs in October and outlines upcoming issues employees should prioritize.
