Voting in favor were Mayor Jimmy Haley, Vice Mayor Ben Newman and Aldermen Mike Neal, Ken Smith, Jimmy Bonner, Rick Barnes and Billy Wood.What officials approved were the street closures needed to hold the event. Scheduled for Sept. 27 from 5-8 p.m., the streets that would need to be closed include West Court Square, Depot Street, North Spring Street and East Main Street beginning at the intersection beside Magness Library and ending where Main Street connects to Spring Street.“In order to visibly mark the required street closures, barricades need to be placed at all points of entrance to the streets,” said Stefanick.
