Downtown Sidewalk Sales Of Wine On City Council Agenda
Downtown Sidewalk Sales Of Wine On City Council Agenda

An ordinance that would allow downtown sidewalk sales and consumption of wine will once again be discussed by the Mitchell City Council on Monday night.  The ordinance was discussed at the last city council meeting, but council members decided that some wording needed to be changed.  The issue was discussed by the council last spring, but failed to pass.  Also, a proposed one dollar tax on occupied hotel rooms is on the agenda.  The tax, or business improvement district, would help finance a second sheet of ice at the Mitchell Activities Center as well as a local sports authority.  The authority would promote Mitchell in order to attract sporting events to the city with a focus on overnight events.  The business improvement district is expected to raise about 170,000 dollars annually.  Tonight’s council meeting begins at 7:30 at City Hall in downtown Mitchell.  Committee meetings begin at 6:15.
