Hurley approves licenses, banners
June 18, 2020
HURLEY — The Hurley City Council on Monday approved liquor and cigarette licenses in a special meeting.
The council approved a class B beer license to Hurley Highlands Gas, LLC, at 510 2nd Ave. N., followed by approval of a cigarette license to the same business.
The council then approved the purchase of 75 replacement banners for the decorative lighting poles on Silver Street. The cost is approximately $2,700.
Robert Lanctoe, city alderman and member of the public works committee, said the current banners have been up since 2007 and are weathered. The old banners were removed in May for placement of the 2020 Hurley High School graduate banners that will come down when the new banners arrive.
Lanctoe said the new banners have various designs that feature silhouettes of a miner, logger, trapper and a saloon for Silver Street. He is in communication with the Iron County Museum to review archival photos to provide an opportunity for a double banner on each light pole.
Lanctoe said he will bring the photos to the city hall for the city council members to review and offer recommendations.
