MMBA | Position Paper

Resolution Opposing The Concept of Allowing Wine To Be Sold, For Off Premise Consumption, at Any Outlet Other Than The Municipal Liquor Store


WHEREAS, the sale of wine for off premise consumption, in any (city) business outlet, other than the municipal liquor store, could cause problems in our youth of uncontrolled and excessive drinking and subsequent increases in police protection costs; and

WHEREAS, the sale of wine in any (city) business outlet, for off premise consumption, other than the municipal liquor store would be damaging, injurious and otherwise detrimental to the financial status of the (city) municipal liquor store and the city itself

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of (city), State of Minnesota, hereby express our opposition to the sale of wine, for off premise consumption, in the city other than at the (city) Municipal Liquor Store.
