A Danielsville pool hall, which was recently denied an alcohol license, can admit minors, city leaders decided Monday.
The Danielsville City Council agreed to allow children into Pop’s Roadhouse Billiards on Hwy. 98 East. However, those under 18 must be out of the pool hall by 11 p.m. And those 16 or under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The council also agreed to allow the pool hall to open on Sundays from 1-6 p.m.
Pop’s Roadhouse owner Debbie Cox told the council Monday that she wants to make the pool hall a family-friendly environment, adding that the business offers karaoke for families, including gospel music.
In other matters Monday, the council agreed to sell water to tank trucks for a $25 service fee and a rate of $13 for every 1,000 gallons purchased.
Mayor Glenn Cross said he has been approached recently by citizens asking to fill swimming pools.
He also said city revenues are down and that if Danielsville doesn’t start selling water, “we could be in a world of hurt.”
Councilman Roger Watson noted that the city hasn’t raised tax rates in a decade. He noted that the city’s primary source of revenue is from water and that the collapse of the housing market has hampered planned developments in the city, leading to fewer city water customers than expected.
