The Sylvania Township trustees have established a six-month moratorium on the establishment of any internet sweepstakes business in the township.
The action was taken after Daryl Graus, manager of the township zoning and planning office, said there had been an inquiry concerning establishing such a business in the township. He told trustees the Sylvania Township Zoning Resolution does not have a category for internet sweepstakes cafes and thought it would be best to simply put a temporary stop to any such development for six months.
Because his office is in the middle of updating the Zoning Resolution, he said he will be able in the next six months to determine an appropriate category for such an establishment.
There is controversy as to whether such businesses violate anti-gambling laws, although some operate openly in Toledo.
