HOUMA, La. (AP) - The conversation on the number of bingo games allowed at a single facility in Terrebonne Parish continues on as the parish council looks to change the ordinance governing the games.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1UOyVKB) the parish council Monday night was set to introduce an ordinance to allow for four bingo games at a single facility a week. But after more discussion they decided to introduce an ordinance to allow for three games a week with the stipulation that, if the ordinance change were to pass after public hearings on Jan. 27, the ordinance be revisited after six months.

Councilman John Navy, who is pushing to change the ordinance to three days with the six-month trial period, said the council is not going to be able to please everyone.
