City again seeking higher status from legislature

The effort to raise Midway's city classification, which would give it more power to control matters such as alcohol licensing, has been revived in the General Assembly. Tomorrow the City Council is scheduled to pass a resolution asking the legislature to raise the city from the fifth to the fourth class "based on the population, the geography and economic condition of the city," according to the meeting notice from City Hall.

The council was already scheduled to meet at the Holly Hill Inn from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a retreat with a facilitator in an effort to set goals for the next two years, with no action to be taken. The meeting for the reclassification resolution is set for 11 a.m. at the restaurant.

An effort to raise Midway's clasification failed in the 2010 General Assembly. For the initial story on that, click here; for the last story, go here.
