HORN LAKE, Miss. (AP) - Horn Lake aldermen have voted to make it easier for used car dealerships to locate in the city but opted against easing guidelines on live advertising.

On the recommendation of the Planning Commission, The Commercial Appeal reports (http://bit.ly/1f0pOos) the board voted 5-1 this week to amend zoning ordinances to allow dealerships in the M-1, M-2, C-3 and C-4 zoning districts.

Previously, used car dealerships were allowed only in conjunction with new car dealerships. Some aldermen, however, wanted to ease restrictions to allow upscale, high-volume used dealerships.

On the live advertising issue, the board didn’t question a Planning Commission recommendation to deny increased use of live advertising.

The issue had been raised by a tax preparation business that wanted to use costumed roadside advertisers more than allowed currently.
