What’s the Story With Chuck E. Cheese?
CEC Entertainment Inc, which owns Chuck E. Cheese, announced that it was voluntarily moving from Oak Lawn, which seems to have satisfied everyone. The nail in the coffin came when some of Mayor Sandra Bury’s allies announced that they were now AGREEING with Trustee Robert Streit, who has been the most ardent critic of the establishment, in calling for a hearing on the revocation of the license. Rather than face the music, the Chuckster announced it was pulling up stakes. But nobody seems to know the deal. The Village of Oak Lawn has been quite about a cryptic press release that said, “In light of this, the village is presently working out an agreement that will make this process as expeditious as possible prior to calling for further disciplinary proceedings.” What the heck does that mean? What does “working out an agreement” mean and when will the public be told how much that will cost?
