PELHAM – A resolution passed by the Pelham City Council on Jan. 3 revoking the license of a local business owner has been voided.

At the Jan. 3 meeting, building official Bob Miller said Isaac Smith, owner of Oak Mountain Glass Services, had not paid taxes since July 2018. He recommended that Smith’s license be revoked for failure to pay applicable sales and use taxes.

Smith fell behind on paying his taxes after several clients failed to pay him for his services. At the meeting Smith asked the council to give him two weeks to pay the taxes owed. Although the council approved the resolution revoking Smith’s business license, it was agreed that if Smith paid the delinquent taxes within two weeks, the revocation would be voided.

Smith kept his word and paid the money owed to the city, thus the revocation is null and void.

“Everything is good to go,” Miller said on Wednesday, Jan. 23. “We look forward to having Mr. Smith be a part of the Pelham business community for many years to come.”

At the Jan. 3 meeting, Smith said he’d hired an accountant to maintain his finances.

“I’m just trying to get on top of things and stay on top of things,” Smith said.
