      Change in Jasper Alcohol Ordinance Proposed

      Anne Sneve, Jasper City Council member, suggested looking at the City of Jasper alcohol ordinance to align more with the state for the food/alcohol ratio. Currently, the ratio required for food to alcohol sales is 75% food to 25% alcohol. This ratio may deter some restaurants from moving to Jasper that require more of an even split. Mrs. Sneve also suggested looking into the legalities of having one time festival/events with beer trucks, wine tastings, etc. Bill Pickett, City of Jasper attorney will research the legalities of making changes, and a presentation will be made at the September council meeting.
