A request to change the day of the regular meeting of the Crossville City Council to accommodate Council member Jesse Kerley was deferred. Councilman Kerley recently received a promotion at his job, preventing him from attending the regular meeting on Tuesdays. Council is considering moving the monthly meeting to the second Thursday of each month. Being that Kerley was unable to attend Tuesday's meeting, action was postponed last night until such time that Kerley could attend a special call to address the issue.
The Crossville City Council in regular session on Tuesday passed the 1st reading of an ordinance changing the requirements for beer sales. The revision will remove any distance requirements in proximity to churches, schools or other places of public gathering. The change comes after a permit was issued to Bottom's Up on Highway 70 that was within 500 feet of the Place of Refuge Church. Since that permit was issued 3 years ago, Council was not willing to revoke it, and according to the City Attorney, the City could no longer enforce the distance rule with that permit still active. The revision will bring the City in line with state regulations on high gravity beers, wine and liquor, which have no distance limits.
