Recently, the Mansfield City Council approved one business near Legacy High School to sell alcohol. The topic has spurred controversy within the local community. 

The decision almost didn't end up passing. The first was a bid from Carmelita Meat Market that scraped by with an approval that was hardly unanimous. The city's laws prohibit sales of alcohol within 300 feet of a school, and Carmelita is a location 122 feet from northeast side of Legacy High School. Thus, their reason for requesting a variance from City Council. 

The Market Street shopping center, at the corner of Cannon Drive and East Broad street, is located close to Mansfield High School. The second reading on their bid to sell alcohol passed with a 6-1 vote. A third and final reading is required to pass. 

A few city council members spoke out about the accepted bid, while others felt comfortable with the passing.
