The letter I wrote last week started with the comment, “My main question is why the permit was not given to the Tennessee couple when they first applied?” I’m quoting myself, and my memory eludes me on occasion, so don’t let that fact interfere with my intent.
Anyway, my allusion to the incident was to show that Mr. Talley’s church followed the necessary rules to receive their permit from Planning and Zoning, and the Tennessee couple followed the same rules and were rejected when they first applied for a permit. If the city manager and the city attorney agreed that the couple from Tennessee had a lease for their tent (in which their fireworks would be sold) then why would Mr. Talley raise his objections?
Mr. Bowling and Mr. Pennington simply applied their logic in correcting the ruling by Planning and Zoning.
