Fearn said his office got an application from El Sombrero for a building permit to renovate the space last week.

Down the boulevard, Fearn said Burger King is replacing their signs and making a second drive-thru lane. The fast food joint is located at 778 Brookway Blvd. and currently has the driveway blocked off.
