PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) -

A 4-foot long alligator named Wally will be allowed to greet patrons of a Michigan restaurant.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports City Council voted 4-2 to allow American alligators in the city's Central Business District.

Wally will be on hand to greet guests at the Cajun Gator restaurant in downtown Port Huron. It's expected to open within the next week.

Developer Larry Jones had said there were "a lot more excited people than there are people in question" when the idea was floated.

Councilwoman Anita Ashford cast one of the votes against the proposal. She says she's not comfortable with the idea of a live alligator in an eatery.
