Woodbury's Board of Mayor and Aldermen are expected to record a first next Tuesday, April 9.
The board is expected to approve its first liquor store application during a 7 p.m. meeting at City Hall.
Thomas R. Mears Jr. has applied for a license to sell alcoholic beverages at 940 South McCrary St., Woodbury. The store is to be named Bootleggers Liquor.
Once Woodbury has approved his certificate of compliance, a hearing will be scheduled by the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission in Nashville. No date has been set yet.
At its April 2 meeting the Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved several upcoming events at Dillon Park in addition to OK'ing a May 18 parade and 5K run for the Cannon County Good Ole Days Committee.
Good Ole Days is set for May 18 and 19th on Woodbury's Square. The Cannon Ball parade will begin at noon and will include ribbons for best-themed float, best antique vehicle, best horse and buggy, best mule team and best walking team.
The 5K run begins at the Arts Center of Cannon County.
The board approved a plan by Adams Memorial Library for its Summer Reading Program kick-off on May 30 at Dillon Park.
Jeff Cripps of Pleasant View Baptist Church requested use of Dillon Park on May 5-9 for outdoor church services. That request was approved by the board.
The board also approved a Fishing Rodeo to be hosted by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency at 8 a.m. to noon on June 8. The event is scheduled for Stones River right behind Dillon Park.
Two ordinances were approved by the aldermen. The measures call for annexing 6.63 acres of land next to the Arts Center and rezoning it as a C-3 Highway Commercial District.
