Council OKs easing limits on pawnshop locations
Placeholder Image
Gainesville City Council voted 4-2 Tuesday to ease restrictions on where pawnshops can be located in the city. The vote comes as a lawsuit against the city was threatened by TitleMax, which had been prohibited from opening a new location at 719 Jesse Jewell Parkway SW because Georgia Auto Pawn already operates directly across the street. The city issued permits late last year that allowed for interior renovations, and the construction of a freestanding sign, at the new TitleMax location.
