Lula taking comments Monday on new alcohol rules
Ordinance will allow liquor, beer, wine sales at restaurants

Residents can give their views about alcohol sales in Lula at a public hearing 5:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 6055 Main St.

A proposed alcohol ordinance was prompted by city residents approving a Nov. 8 referendum to allow liquor drinks to be served.

The ordinance could make serving beer and wine legal, too.

Those selling beer, wine or liquor by the drink likely will be required to receive a percentage of their profits from food, meaning no bars will be allowed. That exact percentage may be determined from comments Monday.

Currently, only beer and wine package sales at local stores are allowed in Lula, and they can only be sold Monday through Saturday.

Sunday alcohol sales of any type aren’t permitted under the new law. The only way to allow them would be through another referendum.

The ordinance is set for final approval by the Lula City Council at its monthly meeting Feb. 20.
