McCracken Approves New Alcohol Ordinance
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The McCracken County Fiscal Court has approved a new consolidated ordinance related to alcohol beverage control.

At their meeting on Monday night, commissioners voted to approve Ordinance 2018-1, which sets alcohol licensing requirements along with opening and closing times for retail sales. It repeals the previous two ordinances to streamline the county's legal code. 

County Attorney Sam Clymer began working on the new ordinance in February after determining it needed to be updated. At the Feb. 12th meeting, he indicated some likely changes, such as allowing alcohol to be served from 11am to 10pm instead of 1-10pm. Clymer also suggested dropping the minimum seating for serving alcohol from 100 to 50. 

Judge-Executive Bob Leeper indicated that these changes are included in the ordinance, which had its first reading on February 26th. There was no discussion and the vote was unanimous.
