Thorsby alcohol sales delayed until October

It will be early October before businesses in Thorsby can start selling alcoholic beverages, town leaders estimate.

The reason is because the state ABC Board is waiting until the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1 before mailing any beer or liquor licenses.

“It looks like it will be around Oct. 5 or 6 (before alcohol will be sold in the town),” Mayor Dearl Hilyer said after Friday’s council meeting.

The town has changed the date of its second council meeting to Monday, Sept. 13 at 6:30 p.m. to fall in line with the second of two public hearings on alcohol licenses for Mizzell’s Super Saver and Main Street Market. The hearing will precede the meeting at 6 p.m., and both will be held at the Thorsby Annex.

The Town Council voted Friday to amend its business license ordinance to include licensing regulations for alcoholic beverages.

In other business, the town is planning its proposed budget for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. Town department heads reported to the council Friday with expectations for the new year.

Water Superintendent Terry Jackson said the generator at the town’s main well is in need of repair. The cost is unknown, but he said he would report it to the council.

“It’s something to run the whole plant if we lose power for any amount of time,” Jackson said. “It’s a valuable tool for us.”

Fire Chief Lee Gunn said his department has been purchasing two sets of turnout gear per year for nearly $3,000 until all sets are replaced. At Gunn’s request, the council approved the hiring of Shelby Lockhart and Jeffrey Blow.

Also, upon the request of Police Chief Rodney Barnett, the council approved new employee safety manuals.
