Sheetz will begin working toward a second location in the city after the Goldsboro City Council Monday night approved its consent agenda which contained three measures concerning the proposed convenience store and restaurant.

The annexation request, initial zoning code and site plan for a Sheetz at the intersection of N.C. 581 and U.S. 70 were among the 18 items approved by consent.

That approval comes nearly two months after the council approved similar requests for a Sheetz location on Spence Avenue across from Walmart.

Other items approved by consent Monday night included:

* A rezoning request for Woodhaven Enterprises, which is seeking to rezone its property at the southeast corner of the intersection of Wayne Memorial Drive and Gracie Place from residential to neighborhood business

* An acquisition of right-of-way on Berkeley Boulevard as part of that street's widening project

* A subdivision request by Jeffrey Allen Deese for his property on the west side of Thad Lane between U.S. 13 and Mull Smith Lane

* A modification to the setback requirements for Belfast Pentecostal Holiness Church, which is seeking to install a canopy over its handicap-accessible ramp

* A subdivision request by Glenn's Landing for property on the south side of Sheridan Forest Road between Mt. Airy and Sheridan roads

* The sale of surplus real property located on the northeast corner of the intersection of South John Street and Arrington Bridge Road

* A resolution recognizing the efforts of The Friends of Willowdale Cemetery

* Acceptance of $7,079 in federal property forfeiture and state controlled substance tax remittance.
