City of Geneseo torn on city council vote to place gambling games in its bars

Local News

On March 9th, the city council of Geneseo will vote on whether or not Geneseo bars should have gambling machines in its bars. Owner of Leamen’s Bar and Grill, Chris Leamen says he’s seen a decline in revenue before the pandemic even started because his bar didn’t have gambling machines. He tells us customers have taken their business outside of Geneseo because of that fact. However, many churches in the area are against this as some believe it goes against the core values of the town of Geneseo.
