A portion of Coosa Avenue in Leeds was named Buc-ees Boulevard at a regular meeting of the City Council on Monday night.
A public hearing was held for the renaming as well as for the granting of liquor licenses for 400 Club and Terry’s Liquor/Grocery. No one from the public spoke for or against any of the resolutions.
When the meeting was called into session, the resolutions were unanimously passed. The street – now Buc-ee’s Boulevard – is adjacent to the property of the chain, which broke ground in June this year.
Construction of the Buc-ee’s location is expected to be completed in fall 2020.
During the meeting, the council went into executive session to consider authorization for outparcel property negotiations and for commercial property negotiations. Afterwards, the council voted unanimously for authorization.
In other business, the council:
- Tabled a resolution to consider vacation of 3rd Ave.
- Authorized an agreement with ALDOT in regard to right of way acceptance at the Buc-ee’s location.
- Ratified monthly city payables and expenditures
- Approved the yearly authorization of professional engineering and consulting services
