Buy-Rite Drugs receives go ahead

By By Chandler Myers
Buy-Rite Drugs request for a zoning change from an R-1 residential area to a B-2 business area has been approved by the city council and the zoning board.
Mayor Shell said this was a result of a previous meeting and that the public met to discuss the subject and no objections.
Also on the agenda for the city council meeting was the second ordinance reading for Mini Warehouses that wants to put up warehouses and storage facilities.
Shell said that Mini Warehouses gave the zoning board the decision of where in a B-2 area they could put warehouses.
Jason Gurganus, an Escambia County Health Department employee, was also in attendance at the meeting to speak on mosquito testing.
Shell said Gurganus was informing the public on products the health department has for problematic areas.
Chamber of Commerce member Sheryl Vickery also attended the meeting and informed the public and officials on a recent trip to Andalusia.
Vickery said the meeting she attended was about how to brand a city to help bring in things for the community.
