Closing hours for the local bar were one of the topics of discussion at the Lee Town Council meeting held Tuesday, March 3.
This writer learned during a phone interview with Town Manager Sarah Anderson that a proposal has been brought before the board to have the bar close at 11 p.m. instead of midnight each night. Neighbors had complained of people leaving the bar after midnight and had requested a time change.
The board opted to have Anderson and Town Attorney Bailey Browning proceed with drawing up the amendment to the local statute. A public reading will be held. At that meeting, they may or may not set a date for a public hearing.
Some members of the community asked questions on construction of the town’s wastewater system. Others expressed concerns about the system and the time that it is taking to install it and do necessary cleanup.
