Pine City Considering Ordinance Changes for Outdoor Auctions
Pine City is considering possible changes in its ordinance regarding outdoor auctions. The discussion stems from Wednesday’s city council meeting.
Cory Gerner and John Beckvar are running auctions during the weekends at the old J&B Rentals facility in downtown Pine City. They requested the planning commission allow sales outside.
City Council Member Brian Scholin:
Pine City Fire Marshall Dave Hill says the auctions are bringing in business to the downtown, but says outdoor auctions present a unique set of challenges
The council agreed to send the request back to the planning commission to go through the Conditional Use Permit process. Paul Miller made the request that the commission also review the city ordinance for holding outdoor auction.
