Grand theft charges for Girl Scout leader
The debate over who will run concessions at Pensacola International Airport -- isn't *quite* over yet. Tonight, the Pensacola City Council will decide whether or not to override the mayor's veto.
Doing so would extend the current airport concessions contract with Robert De Varona.
This airport concessions contract is probably the biggest issue on the agenda tonight. The contract was awarded to OHM, The company plans on moving in next week and already has had a job fair.
But that could all change if the council overrides the mayor's veto.
The City Council voted at their last meeting to extend Robert De Varona's contract at the airport on a month to month basis.
Mayor Ashton Hayward vetoed the council's decision, and last week, signed a contract with Missouri based OHM to move into the airport next week and begin operations.
Now the issue at hand will the council override the mayor's veto? In order to do that, six of the nine council members must vote yes to override it.
The other issue is the building of a Dollar General in a residential area at the corner of Summit Boulevard and Spanish Trail Road.
The land is not in a commercial zone, but the company wants to change that. Residents are rallying to stop that.
The City Council will simply vote to have a public hearing to discuss the zoning of the Dollar General. No concrete decisions will be made tonight.
The meeting starts at 5:30 here at City Hall.
