By a 4 – 3 vote, the City of Cadiz Board of Adjustments approved the conditional use variances when they met last Tuesday evening. The City and the non-profit promised to create more parking spaces and control the parking situation, respectively.
BoA Members Matt Ladd, Larry Kemp, Tommy Dunn and Jodie P’Pool voted to approve the variance that will allow them to open a food bank, sell discounted clothing and help people pay for their medicines in a residential neighborhood.
Boa Members Sharon Butts, Lucas Chestnut and Kenneth Oakley voted against the variance. BoA Vice Chairman Mike Heffington abstained.
“Helping Hands wants to use the facility that was the former Trigg County Baptist Church, Church of Christ. Crossroads used it at one time … for a food pantry and a clothes closet,” said BoA Chairman Bob Brame. “That’s what they are requesting.”
