After 2 years, council acts on alcohol
New Statesboro regulations take effect July 1
After two years of drafts and discussions, Statesboro City Council approved a completely new Alcoholic Beverage Ordinance quietly Tuesday evening. Effective July 1, there can be bars in Statesboro, restricted to patrons age 21 and up, as well as restaurants that serve alcohol to those 21 and up, but who admit younger customers for meals. The rule that previously required every place that served alcohol to make 50 percent or more of its money from non-alcohol items is gone.
