Short but contentious Prescott Cty Council meeting on Monday

While the agenda for Monday's Prescott City Council is not extensive, it includes three contentious questions in the community the group will dive into. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the city building at 800 Borner St.

The first will deal  will be with a proposal by the Prescott Food Pantry to relocate itself and build a new facility on the corner of Wacota St. and Jefferson (Highway 35) streets. There has been opposition to the proposal from persons in the neighborhood established during a meeting of city's Planning Commission earlier this week.

Also on the agenda is Mayor David Hovel's veto of a Class A Beer and Liquor License for the Dollar General store. The measure had passed the council by a 4-1 vote. A two-thirds vote will be needed to overturn.

And the council will wade into the question on a new shooting range next to the city's compost site in Oak Grove Township. There's opposition to the proposed range for the Prescott's Sportsman Club by some residents in Oak Grove Township.
