Princeton Passed Second Reading of Alcohol Ordinance

Oct 2, 2012

Princeton’s city council voted last night to pass the second reading of their new alcohol ordinance. Mayor Gayle Cherry says applications will now be accepted for the city’s two available liquor store licenses. She says it will be at least a couple of months before the stores open. City residents voted in August to go wet. The proposed measure allows businesses to sell alcohol from 7 a.m. to midnight, except on Sunday. Liquor stores may not be located within 1,000 feet of a school or within 200 feet of a church. City Clerk Julie Key says the city will also hold an informational meeting on October 16 for individuals applying for liquor licenses.
