Midway leery of adult entertainment
Placeholder Image
No new adult entertainment will be coming to Midway, at least for the next 90 days. That’s what city council decided Monday.
No specific adult business was mentioned, and members of the council said they would look at regulations used by the city of Hinesville before licensing adult entertainment in Midway.
The council also granted a conditional use to Parkers in the northwest quadrant of the I-95/Highway 84 interchange to build a new store, demolish the existing building and replace the pump islands.
The new Parkers is to have a “community look” compatible with the Highway 84 corridor, like the Flemington Parkers is compatible with that area.
Although it brought an awkward pause to the proceedings, the council finally finalized Midway’s intergovernmental agreement with the Liberty County Development Authority for exchange of water and wastewater treatment.
The council agreed to the concept at last month’s meeting, but did not have the actual document in hand. Monday, some council members had copies of the document which they shuffled back and forth while Mayor Don Emmons called for a motion.
“I’m still waiting, guys,” he said.
Then Mayor Pro Tempore Clemontine Washington moved to approve the agreement. With a second from Councilman Levern Clancy Jr., it passed unanimously.
In other business, the council accepted a Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission recommendation for a conditional use for Bright Star Day Care to improve and enlarge to care for about 20 children.
