It’s a light serving of Decatur City Commission-ness to start the year this evening, as the four remaining members of the commission will vote one of their own into the mayor’s seat while another will receive the mouthful title “Mayor Pro-Tem”. There can be only one!
Other than that, they’ll be giving an alcoholic beverage license to Chai Pani and appoint the city attorney, municipal judges and commission/board seats. Annnd, that’s about it. Don’t forget, you can always watch the drama unfold over on the city’s website.
Wait, does Decatur technically have a mayor right now?? (Decatur Metro, asking the questions you don’t care about – and ending sentences with prepositions. Since 2007!)
UPDATE: No longer a rumor. Chai Pani confirmed it on their Twitter page HERE.
Michael points out this Atlanta Mag food critic Bill Addison tweet…
Heard that @chaipani, which rocks Mumbai-style street food & thalis in Asheville, just signed a lease on Watershed’s old Decatur space. #yes
Is this Asheville’s trade to Decatur for the recent news that Farm Burger – which is located in the same building as the old Watershed space – would be opening a 4th location in Asheville?
Regardless, great news for the Decatur restaurant scene and the West Ponce streetscape!
