Proposed new liquor store caused a stir

The question of how many liquor stores does a town need and allegations of intimidation were discussed at the Nov. 15 Red Bud planning commission meeting.

The planning commission was holding a hearing for a special use permit that was submitted by Amit Patel to open a liquor store in the former Hometown Pharmacy located on South Main Street. Patel, along with several others, were in attendance at the hearing to voice their concerns and opinions.
