Alcohol Sales In Lubbock?

7 Jul

Councilman Todd Klein will appear on LFN Tuesday morning to discuss this story from the AJ:

A city councilman thinks Lubbock should prepare for the day the city legalizes alcohol sales in case it ever does.

Councilman Todd Klein will propose a resolution to study zoning districts best suited for alcohol sales at Thursday’s council meeting. He said he also hopes it sheds light on what he considers unfair state laws that make it difficult for voters to petition for an election.

Other cities in the region, including Wolfforth just southwest of Lubbock, have passed some for of legal alcohol sales. Klein said he has never seen a study on how much sales tax the city could garner, but says “we could only assume it’s a fairly significant number and would most certainly continue to grow.”

So should Lubbock vote on Alcohol sales without a petition?
