Statesboro City Council has before it separate proposals to establish an Alcohol Advisory Board and raise most establishments' beverage license fees by $500 or a little more, in addition to a completely new Alcoholic Beverages Ordinance that could be adopted at the next meeting. An additional $300 permit fee would also be applied to businesses that sell alcoholic beverages on Sundays. After two years of discussions, the 50-page alcohol ordinance appeared for an official first reading on Tuesday evening's regular council meeting.
