A public hearing was held at 6:45 p.m. just prior to the regular council meeting for the public to share com- ments for and against the measure. The store is at 300 U.S. Highway 29 north.

But the footage is much more than the needed 300 feet from front door of the building to the front door of the church, Odom added. City Attorney Dan Lee stated that "What is done for one business must be done for all businesses." He said the city must go by the city ordinance. Councilwoman Jean Crocker cast the lone vote against issuing the license. The Council went into executive session for almost an hour to discuss personnel matters.
