THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Pinetree Boulevard are two words that have created a lot of conversation in Thomasville for the last month.

In an important city council meeting Wednesday night, Council Member Jay Flowers' motion to suspend all activities regarding Pinetree Boulevard passed.

The decision comes after the council illegally voted to expand the road from two lanes to three by adding the item to the agenda during its meeting.

"I urge anyone that has a real interest in a three-lane plan to come let us know. Quite frankly, I've heard one person beyond Mr. Hufstetler and Mayor Hobbs speak for that," said Flowers.

The next meeting is set for July 23 and the community will have the opportunity to voice concerns.

Flowers also said there is a chance a vote could happen at that meeting as well.
