TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council on Tuesday approved of imposing a moratorium on the licensing of money brokers in the city.
The moratorium is for 180 days. The moratorium isn’t applied to prevent the renewal of an existing business license.
Trussville City Council President Buddy Choat said a moratorium has been in place “for some time” and needed to be renewed.
The approved resolution states that the city has the authority to “protect the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens.”
The resolution also states that Trussville’s desire is to promote the general welfare of the community and to protect the value of buildings and properties, the image and character of the community, and to preserve and enhance property values.
The resolution states that the city is “undertaking a comprehensive review of its zoning and land use classifications and regulations, with particular attention to its commercial districts and to the completion of a downtown redevelopment plan.”
