Milton council to vote on church exemptions for alcohol ordinance

Milton council to vote on church exemptions for alcohol ordinanceWEARThumbnail

The Milton City Council is moving forward with a change to its alcohol ordinance. Tuesday, we told you that currently, a city ordinance prohibits sales or consumption of alcohol within 500 feet of a church. The only exception is for sacramental purposes.

The council is developing a proposal that would allow churches to apply for a temporary exemption.

That would allow wine or other alcohol to be served at special events, like a wine and cheese social.

A priest from St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church asked for the change.

The council will vote on the proposa for the first time on September 26th and a final vote is expected October 10th.
