“I would also like to see a $1 lease per year until the business is established,” he said. “I don’t want it to be a subsidized business.”
Council member Bill Kirchoff said he was worried that the diner would hurt the current eateries that are in the Town Center — Dairy Queen and Flap Jacks.
“I’m meeting with the other establishments to see what we can do for each other,” Rector said. “I don’t see us competing. I think it will be complimentary for us. It will help us get more people into the Town Center.”
Kirchoff said he still had concerns about the project. The board put the project to a vote and it passed 3-2 with Kirchoff and Whicker voting against the issue.
Board council Melvin Daniel will move forward in drafting the legal documents.
