LAUREL HILL — Clifton Hall, 65, is the City Council’s newest member, appointed Oct. 2 to a seat that was vacant more than 18 months. The job is new to him, but he has eyed business growth as one area the city should focus on.

"I would like to see some more businesses in the area," he said. "Plus, many of the streets are in need of repair."

The city of Laurel Hill currently has 13 licensed businesses, according to city clerk Anita Miller.

The city of Crestview has 908 businesses listed that have been approved and renewed for business licenses, according to Loretta Scardina, the Hub City’s assistant city clerk.

Although he has never held political office, Hall said he has always wanted to help the city. Mayor Joan Smith convinced him to run for the position.

Hall said he learned about the job through Smith, whom he knew through her late husband, Harvell, who had business dealings with his company, according to Hall.
