LINCOLNTON, N.C. - The Lincolnton City Council unanimously approved two new bars for the city at Thursday night’s City Council meeting.

Brian and Marie Kenyon plan to open a Tap Room, featuring craft beers from breweries in the local area. The Tap room will be located on property located at 118 E. Water Street. The Kenyons stated that they would be managing the facility and plans are to open from Tuesday through Sunday. Not set operating hours have been set, and they indicated that the hours wouldn’t be permanently determined until sometime after opening.

The second applicants, Pete and April DeGregory, were approved to open a Tavern on property located at 110 E. Water Street. Unlike the Kenyons, the DeGregories plan to have several large screen TVs for patrons to watch sporting events. Pete DeGregory also noted they their plans are to sell craft beer from a local brewery.

Of course, there were two citizens who spoke against these two establishments in the Public Hearing phase. One speaker implied that since the Kenyons spoke with a “Yankee” accent that they didn’t understand the “Bible Belt.” He further added that instead of serving alcohol, they should open a shoe repair business instead.

With very little discussion the Council approved both businesses.

The Council also took action to memorialize former City Councilman, Devin Rhyne, by naming the splash pad at First Federal Park after him. Councilman Rhyne was the driving force behind the park, working ceaselessly to see that it was completed. Councilman Rhyne passed away in 2017.

Police Chief Rodney Jordan recognized City Police Officer Thomas Hall by presenting him with the Department’s Life Saving Medal. Though the Police Department only presents one Life Saving Medal per Officer, Hall was credited with saving two lives in the last year. In addition, Officer Hall was presented his Intermediate Law Enforcement Certification.

Phil Church of the firm, Loudermilk, Church and Co., presented their audit of the City’s financial state and, and pronounced it to be in very good condition.

In other business, the Council approved a Business Incentive Grant to Don Hartsoe to renovate and expand Ledford Fabrics and More at 202 W. Pine Street.
