Los Reyes Grill is moving downtown
A local restaurateur is making plans to open an eatery in downtown Cairo and Monday night the city council approved an alcoholic beverage license for the new restaurant.
Jose Carlos Ruiz Bautista, owner of the popular Jose’s and Los Reyes Grill, will soon move Los Reyes to downtown Cairo inside the Oliver Building at 117 S. Broad St.
The council unanimously approved a beer and wine retail consumption on premises license for the new downtown location.
Los Reyes is currently located inside the Jose’s bar and after the move that space will become Jose’s Sports Bar, according to the local businessman.
In other business Monday night, the city council:
‰Approved use of office space on the second floor of City Hall by Grady County Children and Youth Coordinating Council Director and Grady County Family Connection Coordinator Nola Daughtry. Daughtry has previously been housed at the Cairo Career Center of the Georgia Department of Labor.
‰Named Croy Engineering of Marietta as the city’s airport consultant on the recommendation of Cairo City Manager Chris Addleton and the city’s airport committee.
‰Heard from Councilman Kermit Gilliard regarding complaints from residents on North Broad Street who are concerned about an abandoned pool. Gilliard questioned if the council needed an ordinance to deal with such nuisances, but City Attorney Thomas L. Lehman said the city could treat an abandoned pool as a nuisance and noted the mosquito problem caused by standing water was a problem in itself. Addleton reported that the pool was actually a fish pond and city crews had emptied it and stored it in the garage of the home on North Broad, which is under foreclosure.
‰Heard an update from Building Official Bryan Hayes that a property owner was to purchase a permit to raze a burned out residence on Eighth Street S.W. and that another burned out residence on Sixth Street S.W. was still under investigation by the insurance company.
