McMinnville Board
Jay Walker Wednesday October 15, 2014

The much anticipated vote by the McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen on a measure to remove the distance requirement from the beer ordinance did not take place Tuesday night. That's because only three board members were present, therefore not enough for a quorum. That meant no action could be taken on items on the agenda that required a vote. Board members present were Mike Neal, Jimmy Bonner and Ken Smith.
Several visitors attending the meeting spoke out against the beer ordinance amendment and expressed appreciation to Aldermen Neal, Bonner and Smith for voting against it on first reading last month. Neal said he would be willing to bring the issue back to the table with the new board to try to get the amendment reversed if it passes second reading in two weeks.
The next City Board meeting is October 28th at 7pm.
