MOUNTAIN VIEW – A request was made in the workshop of the Mountain View town council Tuesday night for an open-air market to be held in the town park this summer.
According to Les Laughter, the set up for the market would be similar to last year’s Farmers Market, but “veggies wouldn’t be the attraction.” Laughter said businesses would be encouraged to set up spots. The set up would allow vendors who are not allowed at Farmers Markets by the state’s laws. Vendors would be commercial set ups and include items such as retail, handmade, etc. “No junk” would be allowed because the market is not intended to be a flea market. Plans are to hold the market on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There was some discussion of holding the market on the new grass field of the park. Questions were raised as to the amount of wear the new grass could sustain without being damaged.
The council took the issue under advisement and is to have an answer for Laughter at their next meeting, April 16.
During the council’s regular session, they approved the liquor licenses within the town’s limits – High Plains Pizza, Inc., F & M Bridger Corporation, Cowboy Bar Home of the Tripp and Fall Out Lounge, LLC; Badlands Saloon Liquor and Lanes, LLC; and Crazy Ate Café and Steakhouse, LLC.
Prior to the approval, the council held a public hearing on the liquor licenses. There were no comments.
