Jemison approves alcohol licenses

The Jemison City Council on Monday approved beer and wine licenses for two businesses.

The 191 Express store and the city’s new Dollar General will be allowed to sell alcohol after no residents attended the public hearing to voice dissenting opinions and the council voted unanimously to approve the licenses.

City Clerk Sheila Hogge said the businesses had met all necessary requirements.

The council, at a regular meeting, also recognized Deputy Police Chief Marc McMinn for passing the state fire investigator exam to become certified in the area.

McMinn gives Jemison its third fire investigator and first in the police department.

“We can’t help but say this is a great achievement,” Mayor Eddie Reed said.
