The council voted 5-1, with Councilman Bob Rush opposing, to accept the streets of the Pinnacle Place neighborhood within the River Green subdivision.
The council voted to table until July 5 a review of a request from the Villas at RiverStone to accept its private streets.
The issue of the city accepting private streets of several subdivisions had been championed by Councilman John Beresford, who lives in the Pinnacle Place neighborhood.
Councilman Bill Bryan, who also voted in favor, questioned if it were a conflict of interest for Beresford to vote on the issue.
City Attorney Bobby Dyer said voting on the issue wasn’t a direct financial interest.
The council also directed Dyer to draft an ordinance to amend the city’s alcohol ordinance to change its food-to-alcohol to allow for food sales to be at least 50 percent to be classified as a restaurant.
The current ordinance says restaurants’ food sales must meet the 60 percent threshold.
The ordinance will be for review during the city’s July 5 work session.
