Linden holds on business license until ADEM approval

Andrelias Johnson came before the Linden City Council on Tuesday requesting a business license to operate a car wash on E. 7th Avenue and S. Main Street.

Johnson said the car wash has a drain inside the building and that he planned on getting a drain installed outside.

City Attorney Woody Dinning said Johnson would need to fill out an application with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) because they regulate car washes.

“You can’t have a business that’s doing that kind of volume unless it’s approved,” he said.

Johnson agreed to seek approval to make sure he was in compliance with ADEM requirements.

The council said they would issue the license for the car wash once Johnson gets approval from ADEM.

Other items discussed by the council include the following:

• The mayor announced he was looking for candidates for an open position on the Industrial Development Board.

• discussing concerns about four wheelers being driven in the streets.

• Dinning said he was in the process of writing the deed for the property donated by the Stewart family.

The Linden City Council meets the first and third Tuesday of each month, at 4:30 p.m., at city hall.
