Public invited to Alcohol Beverages Ordinance meetings

For Immediate Release
Date: September 5, 2017

The next series of public meetings to discuss possible revisions to the Alcoholic Beverages Ordinance will be held on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center, 305 Fahm Street.

The Tourism Management and Ambassadorship Department, Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Unit, and Revenue Department have been working with the community to revisit possible revisions to the ordinance. This work is continuing and focuses on key areas to include addressing concerns regarding bar card provisions, Sunday sales, persons under the age of 21 in establishments when the kitchen closes, enforcement and other items identified when implementing the initial ordinance changes.

“The input received during the first two public meetings was helpful in guiding possible updates to the ordinance,” said Bridget Lidy, Director of Tourism Management and Ambassadorship. “We look forward to continuing the dialogue during the upcoming meetings as we begin to finalize recommendations.”

In August 2016, the City of Savannah approved updates to Alcoholic Beverage Ordinance relating to the regulatory provisions and criteria for approving, denying, suspending, and revoking alcoholic beverage licenses; and to update and restructure the ordinance. These changes went into effect on January 1, 2017.
