The Baldwin City Council heard a request last week for a one-day business license for an auction to be held in a building in the industrial park.
Kurt Kilgore, Rockabilly Auctions, Commerce, asked the council to issue him a business license or permit to hold a one-day auction on Jan. 12 in the industrial park building owned by Doug Michael and located at 230 Industrial Park Boulevard.
City attorney David Syfan explained that a business license would be needed.
“Arguably, they are operating a business within the city,” Syfan said. “He’s in the business of selling items … not his items.”
