The town of Farmville has approved a moratorium on Internet cafes within their jurisdiction.
Paul Ellis, says council will restrict the cafes for the next 120 days until the General Assembly takes up the issue.
The issue at hand, is how the businesses operate. The concept is to sell Internet time, so customers can pay casino type games for money.
Rocky Mount and Kinston have also restricted the cafes. The State Legislature will meet next month in the General Session and will most likely take up the debate.
