Burch wants to give car wash developers the chance. Council votes 17-17. Gentry breaks the tie against tabling motion.
UPDATE: Before breaking the tie and killing the tabling motion, Mr. Gentry asked the buzzing Council rhetorically, "Do you think that I would vote against the Vice Mayor"? (Diane Neighbors was recognized earlier in the meeting for the purpose of expunging all previously deferred motions from the Council's Old Business hopper. The exercise seems to be the Council's liminal ritual of transitioning from one Vice Mayor to the next).
