If you want to sell alcohol in Warner Robins on Sundays, be prepared to dish out a little extra cash.
Council voted tonight to amend an ordinance to raise the cost of a liquor license by $500 for all establishments who decide they want to sell alcohol on Sundays.
In the first version of the ordinance, proposed in December, the increase in the cost of the license would affect all restaurants and stores who had the option to sell on Sunday, even if they didn't participate in the new law.
Councilwoman, Carolyn Robbins, proposed the change to the ordinance just a few hours before tonight's meeting.
"We were looking for a way to be able to enforce a fee on it because I think we do need a fee on it, because selling alcohol on a daily basis causes problems for our city," says Robbins.
Robbins says she decided to propose this change after many business owners who don't want to sell alcohol on Sundays, expressed concern about the proposed increase.
