Hoover Council approves temporary moratorium on vape shops, payday lenders and more


The Hoover City Council on Monday approved a temporary moratorium on shops the Council feels does not present the city in the best light.

By a 4-3 vote, the council agreed to stop issuing business licenses to vape shops, pawn shops, check cashing stores, and title or payday loans shops.

Councilman Casey Middlebrooks first proposed the moratorium during a council meeting last month.

Middlebrooks worried too many of these types of shops may drive away future business for the city. His fellow council members shared his concern.
