An ordinance that will require the permitting of game and dance halls in the city of Terrell was passed last week on first reading by the Terrell City Council. The ordinance also includes amusement redemption machines. This category includes 8-liners which have been considered gambling devices in the past. Attorney Greg Shumpert said the devices have never been determined to be gambling devices by the state legislature or the court of criminal appeals, but only by an Attorney Generals' opinion. Based on that, the new ordinance does not consider the machines to be gambling devices, but it will require a stringent permitting process that allows the city to inspect the businesses at any time unannounced. Terrell's Police Chief K. G. McKeown said the new ordinance will make enforcement of regulations on game and dance halls easier.

Texas law requires the driver and all passengers in a vehicle to be secured by a seat belt, and the fine and court costs for failure to wear a seat belt could be up to $200.00 according to TxDOT.
