City council OKs peddlers license, Christmas event in park

News Staff Writer

Four of five Atmore City Council members gave a unanimous green light to the panel’s only two business items — issuance of a peddlers license to a Georgia meat company and approval of a request by a local ministry to use a city park for a community Christmas event — during the Monday, November 28, meeting.
District 1’s Webb Nall was unable to attend the meeting due to a family medical situation.
Michele Schriener, who serves as outreach coordinator for Renovation Ministries, was granted permission to hold a “community outreach” event at Westside Park on Saturday, December 17.
Schriener said the outdoor fete will begin at 1 p.m. and will include “Christmas for the children, some giveaways for the adults, food for everybody, worship and fellowship.” She did not indicate how long the holiday party would last.
In the only other business conducted during the meeting, council members approved a request from Country Fresh Farms of Peachtree City, Ga., for a $1,000 peddlers license that will allow the company to set up its truck and conduct frozen meat sales “three or four times a year and be set up for three or four days at the time.”
City Clerk Becca Smith, who moderated Monday’s meeting, said the company will operate out of the Cricket Wireless parking lot on North Main Street when it’s in town. She added that the company plans to make its first appearance in Atmore on Sunday, December 4.
