City tightens alcohol ordinance

NEW ALBANY — The City of New Albany has decided not to allow the sale of single packaged beer or light wine, or to permit sales at city-sponsored events.

The single sale restriction does not apply to restaurants or similar on-premises sale and consumption.

The board of aldermen’s March 2 decision slightly tightens the city’s new beer ordinance.

The ordinance prohibits beer being sold closer than 250 feet to a church or school. Stores will be able to sell from 7 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday, and on Sundays from 1 p.m. to midnight.

City voters approved the sale of alcoholic beverages on Jan. 12. An ordinance could go into affect as early as April 1.
