Alcohol ordinance passes


July 31, 2013 —

Alcohol sales will be allowed in package stores from 6 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Saturday. Alcohol by the drink will be sold from 11 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Saturday, and 1 p.m. to midnight on Sunday.

Steele also addressed public concern with when alcohol could be sold by the drink on Sundays.

The mayor suggested Monday that the time of allowed Sunday sales be pushed back to 2 p.m. in order to accommodate those in the community who are against alcohol. No action was taken, however.

Glass told the Council that he expected ABC to allow two liquor store licenses within the city.

“We have been led to believe there will be two but that doesn't mean that two will be issued,” Glass said. “All those decisions are made by the state ABC.”

Council will hold another special meeting on Thursday, Aug. 8, to discuss the alcoholic beverage administrator position and to consider applications for police chief.

The entire ordinance appears in the July 31 issue of the Journal-Times, starting on Page D-4.

Leeann Akers can be reached at or by phone at 474-5101.

The process:

  1. The City of Grayson publishes the ordinances in the newspaper of record.

  2. The state board of Alcoholic Beverage Control will publish a notice stating that interested parties can publish a notice of intent to apply for a license.

  3. Applicant must publish intent to apply for a license with the newspaper of record. This can be done in person in any of our office locations (Grayson, Olive Hill, or Morehead) or by calling toll-free 800-247-6142.

  4. Once printed, attach a newspaper clipping of the announcement to an application.

  5. Fill out the application.

  6. Take the application to the City Building with a $50 application fee and a certified check, cash, or money order for the license amount, minus the application fee.

  7. Be patient!
