At Monday's City Council meeting yet another owner of an 8-liner establishment, located at 916 Houston was asking for a zoning change so it can open. Several showed up to speak-out against the proposal, including the owners of two adjacent businesses and a member of the Heritage Foundation. In the end the City Council voted to deny the permit to re-zone the property for use as an 8-liner business. However, later in the meeting a second re-zoning permit for an 8-liner establishment in the 12 hundred block of San Bernardo came up for a vote. The council approved that one. There are currently over five thousand 8-liner machines registered here in Laredo.
