Smith explains drive-thru complaint
During Monday night’s Newton City Council meeting Ken Smith voiced his opinion on a drive-thru window at BridgeHouse Coffee Co.
The Daily News was able to sit down and talk with Smith about the matter, and he wanted to express he is not against new businesses coming into Newton. He hopes that Bridgehouse Coffee is a success, but was frustrated on the how the previous council handled Uncle Nancy’s Coffee House’s request for a drive-up window.
“What I was trying to say is I did appreciate the council looking at ways to help a business downtown,” Smith said. “I think that should be the perspective. What I was saying is that I do think they should be fair about it, (and) they shouldn’t help just one to the exclusion of the other. If they are going to let one have a drive-up window they ought of let a similar situated one have a drive-up window (too). In fact they had done this, they turned down a window for one. They were going to grant a window for another.”
