Background and Rationale

body

On October 12, 2023, Ramsey County received an application from the Lake Region Hockey Association requesting a premises permit for Applebee's Neighborhood Grill Bar, located at 1018 Meadowlands Drive, White Bear Township, MN 55127 that would allow the establishment to conduct lawful gambling using paper and electronic pull-tabs and electronic linked Bingo. The proceeds will support Lake Region Hockey Association.

 

By statute, an organization can only conduct lawful gambling on premises it owns or leases; therefore, Lake Region Hockey Association is also submitting a lease for lawful gambling activity to be conducted on the premises of Applebee's Neighborhood Grill Bar in White Bear Township.

 

Since Applebee's Neighborhood Grill Bar operates in a property located in a township, Minnesota Statutes section 349.213, subdivision 2, requires the Ramsey County Board to approve the application by resolution before the Minnesota Gambling Control Board will issue a premises permit and lease for lawful gambling activity on the premises. The Minnesota Gambling Control Board will review the application and if all statutory requirements related to lawful gambling are met, will issue the required premises permit and license(s). The Minnesota Gambling Control Board handles the initial investigation and ongoing monitoring and enforcement.
