County Grants Beer Permit For Steakhouse

    A new family steakhouse located at the Yalobusha–Calhoun county line on Hwy. 330 received a beer permit during the “first Monday” Board of Supervisors’ meeting.
    Joe Tunnell had initially requested the permit from the county last month, both for on-premises consumption in his restaurant and off-premises consumption for hot beer in the convenience store. That request was postponed because the restaurant was not open, a requirement in the county’s beer ordinance.
    “You’ve read the ordinance?” Board Attorney John Crow asked.
    “I’ve read the ordinance and understand it,” Tunnell said.
    “I am open today,” Tunnell also told supervisors prior to the 4-0 vote. District 2 Supervisor Amos Sims was not present at the meeting.
    Tunnell said the new restaurant will operate as Tunnell’s Family Steak-house and the convenience store as TNT Minimart. The fee for the permit is $15.
    In other business:
    Circuit Clerk Daryl Burney introduced new deputy clerk Lawana Fly.
    “As everybody knows, longtime employee Mark (Scobey) retired after 35 and-a-half years so I hired a new employee,” Burney  told county officials.
