East Ridge City canceled its vote Tuesday night on whether or not to allow a new gas station to sell beer.

"Speedway" is building a brand new, 4-thousand square foot gas station at the corner of Ringgold Road and Tombras Avenue.

It's set to open next month.

We were not given a reason for the cancellation.

Last week, the city's beer board voted unanimously to decline the store's request for a permit to sell beer, because it's within 250 feet of a playground.
