Economic Hardship May Change E'Town Alcohol Sales

Elizabethtown city officials agreed to consider declaring an economic hardship to relax alcohol sales in restaurants. Alcoholic Beverage Control Officer Tom Reynolds told Elizabethtown City Council at a work session Monday he does not expect a relaxation of sales requirements would lead to abuse or a significant increase in enforcement measures. Reynolds said it could reap positive benefits economically and attract new restaurants stifled by the previous requirement.
