During a work session, the Tupelo City Council heard from police and local businesses about how the trial period went.

Law enforcement only made a few arrests for public drunkenness, and businesses said they didn't have any problems with unruly people or trash.

The City Council is expected to consider whether to make the go cup permanent at an upcoming meeting

Also, A Tupelo business developer is looking to add a second hotel to a proposed development on North Gloster Street.

A request was made to re-zone some of the property in a development area known as Pinnacle Point.

It's an area across from the Texas Roadhouse restaurant and beside Community Bank.

The development would include senior living units, assisted living, cottages along with a retail center and restaurants.

One hotel is already in the plans.

City Council members will review the request and vote at a later date.
