BIG RUN â€” A change in state law regarding small games of chance and gun raffles was discussed at Mondayâ€™s Big Run Borough Council meeting.
Every organization that fund-raises must have a small games of chance license, said Scott Bowers, deputy chief, Big Run Area Volunteer Fire Company.
â€śOur fire company has held a license since it first began,â€ť he said, and that as part of the new regulations, all funds raised must be deposited into a separate account.
