[ARCHIVED] Ballot Issue

Election Day is just around the corner. November 2nd will not only determine who will represent the residents of Cedar Falls in our units of government, but voters will also cast the fate of continued gambling in Black Hawk County.

The November election includes a ballot measure that will allow or discontinue legalized gambling in Black Hawk County. It is important voters have factual information concerning the impact of the Isle Casino Hotel Waterloo prior to casting a vote.

Voters are urged to seek the facts, consider the issues and cast an informed vote. The Black Hawk County Gaming Association (www.bhcga.org) receives a portion of revenue from the Isle which is used to “relieve taxes” and to support community project applicants. Well over $12 million has been distributed to 165 quality of life and leisure projects in the area. More than $1 million has been directly funded to projects in Cedar Falls.

The gambling referendum has been a controversial topic in communities around the state. Whether you are for gambling or against it, you will be given the opportunity to cast your vote. For more information about Black Hawk County Gaming Association visit www.bhcga.org.
