The Columbia City Council met at 5pmCT, Wednesday, May 18, 2016 and approved a second reading of an Alcoholic Beverage Ordinance, unchanged in its content from the first reading except for the naming of a acting ABC commissioner. Rhonda Loy, City Clerk have those duties until a permanent commissioner is appointed by Mayor Curtis Hardwick. That appointment, Mayor Hardwick said, is his prerogative, and is not subject to Council approval.
Approval for the ordinance came on a motion by Council Member Craig Dean, with a second by Mark Harris. The vote was 5-0 with Council Members Linda Waggener, Dr. Ron Rogers, and Craig Lasley joining in affirming. Council Member Charles Grimsley was not present.
The ordinance differs from the one working its way through Adair County Fiscal Court as it relates to Sunday Sales. The City of Columbia ordinance allows sales on Sunday from 1pmCT until 10pmCT.
Mayor Hardwick said he is unsure how soon sales can begin, but will be talking with ABC officials tomorrow and will announce it as soon as he has definite information.
Present at the meeting in addition to the Mayor, the five council members, City Attorney Marshall Loy, and City Clerk Rhonda Loy, already mentioned, were Chief Jason Cross, members of the press and two parties interested in obtaining licenses, Lila Ford, already within the city limits; and John Thomas, in the county who has expressed interest in being annexed into the city should the county fail to amend the ABC Ordinance which will receive a second reading on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at 9amCT, at the Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY.
A complete copy of the 20 page ordinance can be examined at City Hall, 116 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY during regular business hours. A copy may be requested pursuant to Kentucky's Open Records laws; it is not yet posted online on the City's website.
