Kennesaw bans new pawn, payday lenders for 1 year

By The Associated Press
MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) Kennesaw has banned new pawn shops and payday lenders from opening for one year. <br /> <br /> The Kennesaw City Council approved the temporary moratorium during a meeting this month. It will not affect businesses already operating within city limits. <br /> <br /> Kennesaw Mayor Mark Mathews said city officials realized Kennesaw's restrictions on lenders were laxer than other cities. <br /> <br /> Councilwoman Cris Eaton-Welsh told The Marietta Daily Journal that citizens told her they were tired of seeing the lenders at entrances into the city. <br /> <br /> Authorities said the moratorium was proposed so city officials have time to research new rules. <br />
