PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - After hearing from two developers urging for a change in the law to allow for restaurant alcohol sales in the city limits, the Pineville City Council scheduled a town hall meeting on the issue.
The council passed a resolution to hold a town hall on March 26 at City Hall.
The city has been "dry" since a vote in 1980 passed to eliminate all alcohol sales in Pineville.
Local Realtors and developers Rod Noles and Matt Ritchie spoke Tuesday to the council about the issue.
Noles said he has had a number of hotel chains say they will not build without their guests having the option of having a beer or wine or such with their meal in a nearby restaurant.
