Emergency cell calls for Carter anticipated in '14


Dec. 18, 2013 — In the Alcohol Beverage Control report given by City Attorney Reid Glass, he informed the council that 11 retail stores have obtained state approval for malt beverage licenses and are actively selling beer.

Four other persons or entities, which cannot legally be identified at this time, are looking to obtain licenses to sell alcohol on their premises, two of which have been approved by Glass and are now sent to the state, and two which have been rejected.

Suttles recommended tweaking details of the city’s alcohol ordinance, such as turning off illuminated alcohol sales signage after business hours and on Sundays. Steele agreed they might return to the ordinance in the near future.

Chief of Police Kevin McDavid said there have been no reports of increased vehicular accidents or DUI citations since alcohol sales began.
