RIDGELEY, WV (AP) — The town of Ridgeley in Mineral County is considering limiting the number of video lottery machines within its borders.

A July 23 public hearing is set on a proposed ordinance that would cap the number of machines at 35.

The proposed limit follows opposition by residents and Town Council members to a tavern that's scheduled to open.

Councilman Dr. Richard Lechliter tells The Cumberland (Ms.) Times-News that the Canal Hotspot will have five video lottery machines. There currently are 30 machines operating in the town.

The Canal Hotspot received a Class A/tavern nonintoxicating beer-only license from the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration in June.

More than 200 residents had signed a petition opposing the tavern.
