The Tax and Licensing Office at Statesboro City Hall can begin receiving license applications from the would-be owners of Statesboro’s first liquor stores when City Hall opens Friday for its normal 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. business day.
Statesboro City Council, by a 4-0 vote Tuesday morning, finally approved the Package Stores Ordinance, setting rules for the licensing of liquor stores to begin April 1, after a 74% majority of voters last November authorized liquor stores in Statesboro for the first time in memory.
