DeQUINCY, La. (AP) - DeQuincy City Council members may soon consider modifying a nearly 80-year-old ordinance limiting the sale of alcohol within the city limits.
At the council meeting last week, The American Press reports the owner Comeaux's Cajun Gold, a local restaurant, asked the council to consider increasing the existing limit to accommodate beer and wine sales at the restaurant.
Comeaux said he never intends to have a bar in the restaurant, but would like to offer beer and wine to diners.
The ordinance, passed in 1936, limits the alcohol content to 3.2 percent when the establishment is within 300 feet of a school.
Council member Denise Maddox recommended that some council members confer with city attorney Douglas Cox and work on a change that suits everyone's needs.
