Alcohol regulations down to one version
Proposal: Under 21 must be out of wet restaurants by 11 p.m.
City Council members who took part in the latest work session for a new Statesboro Alcoholic Beverages Ordinance favored setting a definite time – the time discussed was 11 p.m. – for restaurants that serve alcohol to stop admitting anyone under age 21.

When Tuesday morning’s session began, the new ordinance as drafted by City Attorney Alvin Leaphart still existed in two different versions.
