Randy Toffel exposed their Vapeology shop in Lorna Brook Village in Hoover, Alabama, in 2014 july.
The Hoover City Council tonight voted 4-3 to pass a short-term moratorium against issuing company licenses to vape shops, pawn shops, check cashing stores and companies that issue automobile name loans or payday advances or improvements.
Hoover Councilman Casey Middlebrooks proposed the moratorium, saying these kinds of companies are unwanted and hinder the recruitment of other businesses that are desirable.
Middlebrooks stated numerous council users campaigned from the concept of protecting older, founded communities from decay and then he thinks this moratorium is one step in satisfying who promise.
Some older communities, like those along Lorna path, have observed a proliferation among these unwanted companies, he stated.
He stated he would like to maintain the moratorium set up before the city may take a comprehensive glance at rewriting its zoning ordinance and/or subdivision regulations when it comes to these firms.
