alcohol bottlesHENDERSON, Ky. – A first reading of an ordinance amending the city of Henderson’s alcoholic beverage ordinance was approved in a 3-2 vote at the first meeting of the new year tonight.

The changes propose to alter Sunday sales in the following ways:

• Sales can begin at 10 a.m.
• There is no requirement for minimum number of seats or percentage of food sales in order to be eligible for a special Sunday license.
• Package sales of beer, wine and distilled spirits will be allowed.

Commissioners Austin Vowels and Brad Staton along with Mayor Steve Austin voted in favor of the change. Commissioners Patti Bugg and Robert Pruitt voted against altering the ordinance.

The change in the ordinance will likely pass at the next meeting set for Jan. 23. If so, the changes would go into effect upon publication of the new rules.

In other business, the commission:

• Heard a report from Bob Brettell of Gavilon about upgrades his company is making at the South Main Street grain facility.
• Approved a resolution adopting and approving an agreement with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for the utility phase of the Wathen Lane bridge replacement project.
• Approved a sub-lease agreement between the Downtown Henderson Partnership and Henderson County Tourism Commission for office space in The Depot.
• Heard the city manager’s report about a planned development at 120 Clark St. by Heistand Towing that recently came before the Henderson City-County Planning Commission.
• Continued its review and discussion of the code of ordinances with chapter 17, Parks.
