On Wed. May 16th at 6 PM a Special Call Meeting of the Kennesaw City Council was held. The meeting lasted 45 minutes and 50 people attended. All Council members were present. John and Serena Cruchelow and Tino Venturi were present.
After Zoning Administrator Simmons outlined the subject matter of the meeting, Mr. Garvis Sams spoke for 15 minutes in support of the Venturi/Cruchelow request for approval of an Ordinance to amend a rezoning condition which had earlier been submitted by Mr. Venturi's Mack Dobbs Properties. Nothing 'new' was added, just restated for the record. A stenographer was present to record what was said. Future litigation is probable.
4 people spoke in opposition to any change in zoning and one person spoke in favor of having the Pawn Shop remain.
The 5 member City Council voted 5-0 to deny the request for a change in zoning to allow the Pawn Shop to remain.
