HOUMA, La. (AP) - The Terrebonne Parish Council has extended the life of the ordinance that increased bingo days at a single facility from two to three a week.

In January, the parish council increased the number of games after members of charitable groups that sponsor them and bingo hall owners debated whether the measure would result in increased revenue for either.

The council passed the measure with the stipulation that it would assess its impact in six months.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/2aWzHqX) Councilman John Navy made the motion Monday for extension as no complaints had been heard about the change.

Miranda Trahan, of the T-Caillou (ky-YOU’) Lions Club, said with some of the bingo halls closing over the past six months it is necessary for the clubs to be able to operate their games.
