The Hoover City Council today voted 4-3 to pass a moratorium that is temporary issuing company licenses to vape shops, pawn shops, check cashing stores and companies that issue automobile name loans or payday advances or improvements.
Hoover Councilman Casey Middlebrooks proposed the moratorium, saying these kind of companies are unwelcome and hinder the recruitment of other businesses that are desirable.

He stated he would like to maintain the moratorium in position before the city may take a comprehensive have a look at rewriting its zoning ordinance and/or subdivision laws when it comes to these firms.
