09/02/2010: "CC Asked To Support Change In Liquor Licenses"


The County Council was asked on Tuesday to make a proposed change in State law on liquor licenses a County priority.

Teddy McCullough read a prepared statement to the council members about a move at the state level that is design to tighten up the distance required between a school and a commercial provider of alcohol.

The change would deny any application for a liquor licenses within 500 feet of “school grounds.”

McCullough said the current law allows the distance to be determined from the main entrance of a school, and the proposed change would define the distance as from school property. This change would increase the distance, and is being supported by local school boards.

The Council said they would look into the matter and consider it as one of their priorities before forming a final list.
