Alcohol Law Information

January 2024 Update

On January 16, 2024, the City Council amended city code to allow restaurants in the general city center area including by Macey’s, Meiers, and CVS, to sell alcohol under the following restrictions:

  • 4 total licenses city-wide, and no more than 2 licenses issued per zone
  • Only full service (beer, wine, and spirits) and limited service (beer and wine) licenses are allowed.
  • No alcohol sales after 10:00 pm
  • No alcohol can be removed from the premises
  • No manufacturing, distilling, or brewing of alcohol
  • All other State restrictions and other restrictions will apply

The sale of any alcohol for off-premise consumption is still prohibited such as gas stations or grocery stores. On January 23, a group of residents filed a referendum application on the law change. The City will now begin processing the referendum which may ultimately lead to individuals collecting signatures to refer the law change to an election ballot.
