Alcoholic Beverage Server Training Ordinance

Paducah City Commissioners discussed a prospective ordinance last night requiring training for anyone who serves alcoholic drinks at restaurants and bars in the city. The training focuses on spotting fake ID’s and recognizing heavily intoxicated patrons. Should the ordinance pass, existing wait staff would have 90 days to complete the training and new servers would have to complete the course within 60 days of their hiring date. Commissioners will vote on the ordinance in their next session.

Alcohol Training Support Bill Moving Forward

An effort to strengthen the training alcohol support specialists receive is moving through the General Assembly.

House Bill 335 is sponsored by state Representative Joni Jenkins. It would require drug and alcohol support to receive extra training to be licensed in that field.

Jenkins told a committee last week that the extra training hours would be the equivalent of doing coursework for a master’s degree.
