|AGENDA DATE:||August 10, 2021|
Adopt an Ordinance Amending the Code of Ordinances, Chapter 8, "Licenses and Business Regulations," Article II, "Alcoholic Beverages," Section 8-16, "Sale of Alcoholic Beverages from a Package Liquor Store Prohibited Near Churches, Schools and Hospitals," by Amending Section 8-16 Regulating the "Sale of Alcoholic Beverages from a Package Liquor Store Prohibited Near Churches, Schools and Hospitals."
Marc Kurbansade, Community Development Director
The purpose of this amendment is to provide clarification in our current Code of Ordinances as it pertains to establishments that engage in the sale of alcoholic beverages. The proposed amendments provide congruence with current Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, and also provide means for variance from these requirements as is permissible by Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code. No modifications to distance requirements have been made in this amendment; therefore, those regulations will remain the same.
Attached is a draft ordinance of the proposed amendments. The proposed amendments have gone through a review process with participation from the City Attorney as well as other City staff.
Staff recommends approval.
I make a motion to adopt Ordinance No. ________________ to amend the City of Allen Code of Ordinances.
