Hickory City Council met in regular session Tuesday night (November 2). Minutes, second readings, and the consent agenda were all approved.
A public hearing was held to discuss a downtown social district, per the new House Bill 890 that was recently signed into law by Governor Roy Cooper. A social district is a designated outdoor area in which individuals may consume alcoholic beverages sold by businesses with ABC permits. The new downtown social district was unanimously passed.
