LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The Metro Council will consider expanding a proposed liquor ban to include beer, and the public has a say in the matter today.
Under a current proposal, package liquor sales would be banned after 2 a.m. Now, council members may add beer to the proposed ordinance, too.
The proposal calls for eliminating the 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. retail package liquor license in Metro Louisville. Metro Council members say there are 28 liquor stores with special licenses that allow them to stay open those two extra hours.
Some council members think stopping package liquor stores from selling liquor after two in the morning would reduce crime in the west end.
"Within a thousand feet of one of the liquor stores we're talking about on West Broadway, police made 362 runs to that area just this year alone," Councilman David James (D-6) told WDRB.
"I feel that's selective enforcement and should be unconstitutional to pick on the liquor stores when the bars are the problem," said Sandra Fant, a liquor store owner.
The vote on the proposed ordinance was held off earlier this month.
This proposed measure would not apply to bars and restaurants -- only package liquor stores in the metro area.
