Williston bingo parlor closing

 
Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

WILLISTON (AP) – The Bingo Barn is closing after 20 years, and officials say the state’s law that bans most indoor smoking is the reason.

The bingo parlor, which will shut down after its final session on Saturday, supported three charities: the Williston State College Foundation, Williston Basin Skating Club and North Dakota Association for the Disabled.

Williston bingo parlor closing

WILLISTON (AP) – The Bingo Barn is closing after 20 years, and officials say the state’s law that bans most indoor smoking is the reason.

The bingo parlor, which will shut down after its final session on Saturday, supported three charities: the Williston State College Foundation, Williston Basin Skating Club and North Dakota Association for the Disabled.

Officials said bingo parlor revenue dropped after the smoking ban went into effect in August 2005, but the parlor still had to pay more than $100,000 in state taxes for the fiscal year that ended June 30 of this year.

The charities said they will join others in seeking legislation next year to change tax laws for bingo parlors.
