December 29-- The Vidalia City Council held a called meeting Thursday morning and agreed to return liquor and business licenses to American Legion Post 313 on McIntosh Street in Vidalia.
The Post lost its licensees after a fatal shooting occurred in a parking lot behind the Post home early Thanksgiving morning. The building had been rented to a party disc jockey the night 19-year-old Trey Hunter was killed in a shooting involving Vidalia police. Officers had been called to the scene due to a disturbance in the parking lot and investigators believe the Hunter had been at the party prior to the shooting.
Post Commander Lorenzo Folson provided the council written policy on how the club will operate in the future. He assured the council it will only be used by members and their guests and will operate in accordance with local and state law.
