Arcades, billiards and pool tables are not permitted in Selbyville businesses, according to Mayor Clifton Murray. Council members, however, have discussed somehow combining the two separate ordinances that, in effect, address the same issue. Council said there are no plans to change the laws so that arcades, billiards and pool tables will be allowed, but as the new proposed ordinance is written, private clubs, associations and possibly even private residences could be accused of violating the ordinance.

"I don't think you have to allow or disallow a pool table in a private house," council member Jay Murray said. "You don't have to get a permit for it."

But council still agreed the clarification should be made to ensure residents private in-home pool tables and those in private associations were legal.

Council will continue to address these ordinances at their February meeting.
