No vote on drive-thru alcohol sales

Written by  Friday, 21 March 2014 09:33

  When the matter came up at this week's city council meeting councilman Travis Chance read from a letter he had received from a Statesboro resident who was concerned that it would be easier for someone to use a fake ID in a drive-thru alcohol purchase compared to an in-person purchase at a check out counter.  That person also said it presented a bad impression of the city to parents of potential Georgia Southern students.

 

  Councilman Will Britt said some officials didn't think enforcement would present any real problem but he did acknowledge the concerns expressed in the letter.  He also said convenience store owners that don't have drive-thru windows had complained about the proposal.

 

  After further discussion no one responded to Mayor Jan Moore's request for a motion to amend the alcohol ordinance.
