The regular meeting of the Valentine City Council was held Thursday, January 14th. A lot of routine business matters were quickly taken care of. The council approved liquor licenses for Heart City Drug and the Corner Pub. The council also approved several preliminary agreements with Allo Communications as the city prepares for a new cable TV, Internet and phone provider. It is hoped that cable TV interruptions will be minimal and in some instances, not at all. The city council also approved an economic development loan to Heath and Courtney Bristol to assist in their efforts to purchase the Frosty Drive-In.
