City administrator Jim Osborn also received the go-ahead from council to solicit bids for sidewalk construction between Publix supermarket and the Cornerstone shopping center.

Alcohol ordinance amended

The city’s alcohol ordinance was amended Thursday, primarily a housekeeping matter aimed at bringing consistency to the city’s regulation of alcohol sales. In the change, guidelines for consumption of on-premise distilled spirits were established. Businesses and organizations seeking to obtain permits to sell distilled spirits on premise should contact city hall.
