The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Tuesday that Palm Coast city staff is working on proposed regulations targeting new the cafes, though nine existing ones would be allowed to remain in business under current rules. Palm Coast Mayor Jon Netts and others on the city council say they favor a regulation scheme for the gambling outlets, though as was the case in the Legislature, other local officials favor an outright ban on new establishments. Palm Coast is in Flagler County, between Daytona and Jacksonville. The House this year proposed a ban on the so-called cafes, which allow electronic gaming. The Senate was in favor of regulating the establishments.
In the end, the Legislature failed to pass a bill doing either.
