Justices of the peace discussed the draft of an ordinance prepared by County Attorney Jason Owens which would establish how a private club permit is obtained in unincorporated areas of the county.

Diane Marr has applied for a private club permit for Mountain View Bistro Club, Inc., a restaurant being constructed at 9559 County Road 5440 near Oark.
