City of Clarkston Adopts Revisions to Alcohol Ordinance

Clarkston, Ga. - The City of Clarkston has adopted revisions to its current Alcohol Ordinance at the Council meeting on Tuesday, September 4, 2012. The provisions that have changed provide certain enhancements to the current regulations that govern the sale of alcohol within the City of Clarkston. These enhancements, among other things, will more clearly define the term “Restaurant,” require a Surveyor to certify a site plan submitted with new applications for an alcohol beverage license, establish criteria for visibility into and internal lighting of the regulated establishment for Public Safety Purposes, prohibit electronic game machines or coin-operated devises on premises where packaged beer, malt beverages, wine or liquor are sold and clarify the type of records required for audit purposes to ensure compliance with the Alcohol Ordinance.

The Alcohol Review Committee will provide training for the City of Clarkston’s Alcohol Beverage License Holders. The purpose of this training is to walk the stakeholders through the recently adopted revisions to the alcohol ordinance.

All stakeholders will have an opportunity to learn more about the details of the recently adopted amendments to the ordinance, understand how the changes impact their business and to ask questions of city staff regarding the enforcement of these provisions.
