Canton City Council Imposes Moratorium

Tha Canotn City Council took a bold action last night at their meeting, and imposed a 60 day moratorium on accepting any zoning or building permits for apartments. City Manager Billy Peppers told the council the city has over 4000 apartment units already zoned. Peppers said he has not had an application for any apartments in the last 6 months, but with the building boom

coming back, the city just wants to keep a handle on apartment construction. The moratorium went into effect at midnight last night, and will continue for 60 days.
