The Coushatta Town Council met Tuesday night at Town Hall at 5:30. The council approved granting an Alcoholic Beverage Permit for the recently opened Old Folks Café. Mayor Cox explained, “The permit is only for the sale of beer. We don’t sell liquor in the city limits.” The application was approved unanimously.
Owners of the Old Folks Café remodeled the building formerly operated by Kayla’s Kafe. It is located on US 71-84 south of the Conoco station.
Also approved Tuesday night were budgets for the city operated Biddy Basketball and Biddy Baseball programs for the coming year. Councilman Peter Drake, who oversees the parks, told The Journal the sign-up and game schedule for baseball will be finalized soon. And Mayor Cox said again this year Reginald Prelow will oversee the program.
