Saline gas station won't get Burger King franchise
The station is located at 777 W. Michigan Avenue east of Riveroaks Boulevard. The registered owner of the property is Petro Power Inc.
A preliminary site plan submitted by Saline Property LLC on Aug. 16 called to remove an existing car wash, relocated gas pumps to the west side of the building, add a Burger King to the east part of the building and build a 430-square-foot addition for two walk-in coolers.
However, at Monday’s Saline City Council meeting, Mayor Gretchen Driskell said Burger King wasn’t interested in putting a franchise at the location, and Saline Property LLC decided against taking the plans further, Patch reported.
Some council members expressed disappointment that the city had worked on the project for months when the Saline Property LLC owed the city $15,734 in taxes and $2,907 in water bills, according to the report.
Driskell said the tax situation had nothing to do with the decision to stop the process.
