Zeeland City Council Holds Off on Liquor Sales Changes

ZEELAND, MI (WHTC) - Another proposed change to Zeeland’s alcohol sales code has been scrubbed, for the time being.

Last night, council members tabled a proposed amendment that would have waived the 60 percent food sales threshold for establishments to have a liquor license in the city. The planning commission brought up the idea to help stimulate the growth of local microbreweries, but council wanted to wait until the first such brewer, Triple Root, opens later this spring to see how things go before revisiting the issue. Last month, local residents circulated petitions that successfully shot down a proposal by city marketers that would have allowed limited alcohol sales and consumption at Lawrence Park for a summer concert series.

Zeeland voters in 2006 decided to lift a century-long ban on liquor sales within the city limits.
