Walhalla has scheduled a public hearing next month on a downtown business request for a beer/wine permit. The board of zoning appeals will consider the application during a hearing at 5:30 p-m Thursday, March 6 at City Hall. The applicant is Palmetto Bakery and Café on Main Street. According to James Ashton, zoning administrator, the applicant seeks an exception to the city zoning law. He says the city requires anyone who is planning to acquire a permit for either on-site or off-site consumption to get an exception to the zoning law.
