The Priceville Town Council approved the alcohol license from Hay Chihuahua Mexican Restaurant during their bimonthly meeting Monday night.

Among the nightly agenda, a public hearing was set for the approval of the Hay Chihuahua Mexican restaurant’s alcohol license. A resolution was adopted approving Jesus Cordero‘s submission. Mayor Melvin Duran said Cordero had applied after a month of opening his restaurant.
