City council work session Tuesday

Written by  Monday, 04 August 2014 10:02

  At the conclusion of the regular session council will go into a special work session.   According to the agenda the purpose is to discuss “…proposed changes to Chapter 6 (Alcohol Ordinance) for the Code of Ordinances of the City of Statesboro.”


  Letters to active license holders were sent out last week inviting those who had questions or concerns about the changes to attend.


  The proposed changes are based on similar laws in Savannah and other locations.  A draft was created by City Attorney Alvin Leaphart along contributions by police and other officials.


  Changes considered include: deleting the requirement that restaurants that serve alcohol must receive at least 50 percent of their income from food; removing a proximity requirement from stores that sell beer and wine and Georgia Southern University in accordance with a recent state law change; a way to place a business on probation or suspension and; following violence at a couple of locations in which two people were killed in separate shootings, a provision to revoke a bar’s license for public disorder.


  The purpose of the meeting, which will be open to the public to attend, will be to discuss the proposed changes and no action will taken.
