Sherrie McCall, Beth Moore, and Brent Walker enforced what Craft explained.
After much discussion, the Mayor advised the group to meet before the zoning board. Darnell Moffett, Zoning Commissioner, informed the group he would research all zoning laws and speak with David Wade of the Central Planning District.
All board members agreed the situation needs addressing but must be done through zoning laws.
Anna Rushing appeared before the board concerning a problem with the police involving her son, David Rushing, who was stopped at 3:30 AM by the Magee Police Department. Rushing had an expired tag on the trailer and one tale light out. David questioned the manner in which the two policemen conducted themselves in front of his son. David and his son were on a fishing trip. Anna Rushing and David Rushing tried several times to contact Police Chief Shane Little concerning the matter.
