Lee Town Council approve changes to Lee Business Complex

The Lee Town Council met for their monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 5, at 7 p.m., at Kinsey Hall. The agenda only had a few items for discussion. The first item of discussion was a resolution to authorize an interlocal agreement between Lee and Madison County for building code, planning and zoning services. Chuck Hitchcock, Superintendent for Planning and Development for the City of Madison, has been performing the building inspections but he was seriously injured in a wreck on March 8. There will be a special meeting and public hearing on Tuesday, May 12, at 6:30 p.m. The council will vote on whether to accept the agreement to have Madison County take over the building code, planning and zoning services. The second item was owner of Whiffenpooh and Lulu Too, Joyce Bethea, asking the council if she could rent the room next to hers in the Lee Business Center for a nominal fee for an hour a week to use for her sewing class. The council agreed to rent it to her for $10 a week. The third issue was concerning Everything Pecan’s rental rate. Silynn and Jay Lee recently purchased Everything Pecan from the previous owners. The council voted on Feb. 3 to increase the rental rate from $195 a month to $350 a month on June 1. The Lee’s presented two options for the rates so that they could have time to build business before increasing to $350. The options were to freeze at $195 for 12 months or to keep $195 for six months, then $250 for six months and then $350 after. The council voted to increase the rental rate to $250 on June 1 and keep it for six months, then increase to $300 for six months and then $350. The next Lee Town Council meeting will be June 2 at 7 p.m., at Kinsey Hall.
