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 vehicle name loans or pay day loans or advances.
Hoover Councilman Casey Middlebrooks proposed the moratorium, saying these types of companies are unwelcome and hinder the recruitment of other businesses that are desirable.
