Under “new business” on the agenda is a request to amend city code to allow certain designated businesses to sell and deliver packaged beer, malt beverages and/or wine.

According to a memo attached to the agenda, the purpose of this request is to create a retail option for businesses that do not allow walk-in sales to receive a license for the retail sale, as a retail delivery shop, of beer, malt beverages and wine.

“The Georgia General Assembly adopted House Bill 879 last year allowing for the home delivery of beer, wine, and liquor,” the memo attached to the agenda says. “Go Puff- Clarkston is requesting the ordinance amendment to venture into the delivery of beer and wine as a retail delivery shop. Per Section 3-58, of the City Code of Ordinance, Go Puff is ineligible to obtain a new alcohol license in Clarkston as they currently do not meet the code requirement to sell as a growler shop, a specialty wine shop, or a grocery store. Effective July 3, 2016, the city no longer issues new licenses for the package sale of beer, malt beverages, and/or wine by package stores, convenience stores, other similar businesses, or any businesses other than those specifically identified in City Code of Ordinances Section 3-58.”
