RESOLUTION APPROVING THE EXEMPTION OF A BINGO LICENSE AND WAIVING THE 60 DAY WAITING PERIOD FOR LINCOLN PARK BUSINESS GROUP.

BY COUNCILOR STEWART:

     BE IT RESOLVED, that the Duluth City Council hereby approves of the Minnesota gambling control board issuing a lawful gambling bingo exemption to the Lincoln Park Business Group and does hereby waive the 60 day waiting period which it has to object to the issuance of said exemption.

     RESOLVED FURTHER, that the city clerk is hereby authorized and directed to send a copy of this resolution to the Minnesota gambling control board immediately after its passage.


Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 10/14/2005: Shelly Bakke was present on behalf of the application. Ms. Bakke explained that their organization was late in their decision to have a turkey bingo and realized that they needed a 60 day waiver. She continued saying that the bingo will be held at the VFW #137 in November and will be limited to 150 players. To questioning from the commission, Ms. Bakke replied that they have several smaller prizes and one large prize. There being no further discussion, Mr. Anderson moved that THE 60 DAY WAIVER REQUEST FOR A BINGO EXEMPTION OF LINCOLN PARK BUSINESS GROUP BE APPROVED AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Hanson seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved.
