CHARLES TOWN – Should more downtown Charles Town bars and taverns be allowed to operate video slot machines?

Eight City Council members were divided down the middle in casting votes to answer the question on Monday. 

Inkwell’s Tavern on West Washington Street initiated the matter when its owners sought a zoning ordinance change to allow downtown businesses the opportunity to operate the gambling machines as an additional source of revenue.
