Legal sales to bring new revenues, challenges

(Continued)

June 19, 2013 —

Among the decisions Grayson will have to make concerning alcoholic beverages will be the types of licenses to be available, requirements for the location and type of premises to be used, days and hours of operation, and a detailed procedure for suspending and/or revoking individual licenses and for punishing violators.

Agents of the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC also will have authority to enforce state and local alcoholic beverage laws in Grayson.

A private club in Greenup County was raided last month for illegal sale of alcoholic beverages and for gambling activities.

Kentucky’s liquor laws are contained in KRS chapters 241, 242, 243 and 244.

State ABC has the following mission statement on its website:

"‚ÄčOur mission is to protect the public welfare and interest by regulating the alcoholic beverage industry through licensing, education and the enforcement of alcohol laws and regulations, as well as combating youth access to alcoholic beverages…”

The City of Grayson soon will face the same challenge.
