Amendments to Waterloo liquor ordinances will be discussed next week


The Waterloo City Council will wait at least another week before passing two amendments to the City of Waterloo Zoning Ordinance regarding regulations pertaining to alcohol sales-related businesses. Part of the proposed change would include adding restrictions to stores with a liquor license and a drive up window.

According to representatives at a work session meeting Monday, this would not make it illegal to for liquor stores or convenience stores to have drive up windows if they already have a window, but it would make it illegal for the stores to sell alcohol at the drive up window.  In order to "eliminate the temptation", the current proposal also would mean that a new store applying for the license would not be able to have a drive up.

On Monday, the Waterloo City Council decided to table the discussion for another week.  The City Council will discuss the proposal further at a work session meeting next Monday.
