  • Elizabethtown confronts delicate part of alcohol law

    ISSUE: Economic hardship declaration
    OUR VIEW: E'town should stick with facts

    Virtually by saying so, Elizabethtown city government can declare the community to be in a state of economic hardship and relax voter-approved restrictions on restaurants serving alcohol.

    A hardship, by definition, is a suffering through a condition that is difficult to endure. If you are unemployed or unemployable in these troublesome economic times, certainly those words can apply.

  • E’town weighs merits of economic hardship

    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.

    “I think it would be offset by new business,” he said.
