Undeterred by a severe thunderstorm that blew through the area Tuesday night, the Show Low City Council met and approved a construction project that focuses on a water line replacement for First Drive.
Shane Hemesath, city engineer, provided members with an overview of the project that was unanimously approved.
The council also discussed an application submitted by Dayalbhai Ahir for a bar liquor license on behalf of Downtown 9 Motel, located at 1451 E. Deuce of Clubs. The bar, which was previously Ace’s Ale House owned by Ryan Hatzenbiler, is seeking a Series 6 liquor license, which would allow it to serve beer, wine and spirits on site as well as “to go” purchases of same.
Councilman Jon Adams spoke on the issue, saying that neighbors had problems with the bar in the past, stating that nearby residents have previously called police about disruptive activities associated with the establishment.
Mayor John Leech Jr. made a motion on the issue, which was seconded by Vice Mayor Connie Kakavas. The motion was passed in a vote of 6-1, with Adams dissenting.
