Junction City Paves Way for Alcohol Sales

Junction City is quickly moving away from prohibition with preliminary approval of two ordinances detailing alcohol requirements and restrictions. The City Council unanimously approved first reading Thursday of ordinances allowing package liquor sales, retail beer sales and alcohol by the drink at restaurants. The measures will not take effect until the council votes on a second reading Monday, said Merl Baldwin, city police chief and soon-to-be local Alcoholic Beverage Control administrator.
