The Gainesville City Council on Tuesday approved three alcoholic beverage licenses and discussed a potential downtown event scheduled for the spring.
The council unanimously approved alcoholic beverage licenses for Pepper’s Market, Pizza Hut on Browns Bridge Road and Wild Wings Cafe on Jesse Jewell Parkway.
Council members also welcomed a proposal from Communications and Tourism Director Catiel Felts for an antique car show on the downtown square in mid-April. The car show, organized by Gainesville businessman William Peck, will feature more than 300 cars, Felts said, and would require that the city block traffic access to the square on the night before and the day of the April 17 event.
The council took no action on Felts’ proposal, but it will have to approve the closing of the streets for the event at a later time.
