PINSON — An ongoing feud involving whether or not to allow Joe Hudson’s Collision Center to build on a vacant city lot is likely over.
According to sources close to the situation, the business has pulled out of the deal, likely due to negative publicity.
At the last council meeting, the council voted to table a vote on incentives for the business to build on the property, but that vote will no longer be needed.
Concerns expressed by residents at the meeting included lowered property values, environmental issues, the eyesore of having junk cars on the main thoroughfare, and the belief that once such a business is put there no restaurants will ever want to locate to the other parcels of land in that location.
The Pinson City Council meets tonight at 7 p.m. with a work session at 6:30 p.m. at Pinson City Hall.
