City Council's Revising Liquor Ordinance: Coming up for Vote to Allow Serving on Sundays

At Monday's regular board meeting, The La Harpe City Council heard a request to adopt a new liquor ordinance for serving drinks on Sundays.

The current ordinance states businesses can only sell alcohol on Sundays not serve it.

The request is to allow businesses to not only sell the alcohol but to serve it as well on Sundays. This would allow businesses to be open on Sunday afternoons to serve alcohol if they wanted to.

The board directed the Attorney to draw up a rough draft of a revised ordinance which will be presented at the next meeting for consideration. Those with questions or concerns should attend the meeting as it will come to a vote.

The sidewalk at the old Fisher building needs some repair. The drains run under the sidewalk and the pvc pipe is broken, and the metal grating is worn.

Power needs to be restored or added to the south side of the park.

Trick or Treat night will be on Thursday, October 31 from 6-8 p.m. this year. City Wide clean-up will be on Friday, October 11th.
