The effects of a dispute over ownership of several business locations in West Pelzer, and the actions to be taken by the town council as a result, was the subject of an executive session held by the West Pelzer Town Council Tuesday night.
The executive session was the sole item on the agenda of the special called meeting. A meeting scheduled for late Friday to consider revoking an unspecified business license was cancelled, and the special called meeting of council was announced on Monday.
The dispute, which has been ongoing for several months, is between the owner of two locations, 22 Main Street and 20 Main Street, (the sites of a beauty salon and ice cream shop, respectively) and the lessor (owner) of 18 Main Street (the Mill Place Café).
The dispute has been heard in summary court, and will be taken to the court of common pleas next, according to one of the parties, Mr. Preston Shipman.
Shipman is seeking to open a tattoo and piercing parlor at Twenty Main Street.
