Public hearing called to mull community’s new liquor law
Published: April 4,2013
NEW ALBANY — New Albany residents will get a look at the city’s new liquor ordinance at a public hearing on May 7.
Local voters approved the sale of liquor and wine on March 19. The board of aldermen was to adopt an ordinance setting parameters not addressed directly by state law.
Mayor Tom Kent says bringing liquor sales to New Albany will help attract more restaurant chains to the city, if the population grows significantly. He says the first liquor permits may be granted within 30 days of the final approval of the ordinance.
Other cities have approved liquor sales, including Corinth and Senatobia. A liquor issue will be on the June 4 ballot in Philadelphia and Brookhaven. Petition drives are under way in other cities.
