City Statesboro logo
The version of the Alcoholic Beverages Ordinance before Statesboro City Council for its 5:30 p.m. regular meeting includes requirements for bartenders, restaurant managers, servers and bouncers to receive a specific kind of training and for bouncers to get a special city-issued permit. However, the draft of the ordinance in the council's packet for Tuesday's meeting did not include an insurance requirement for places that serve alcohol. When the proposed ordinance was discussed two weeks ago, council members said they wanted to require general liability and liquor liability insurance.
