An Olympia City Council committee will sit down with beer and wine industry representatives Monday to talk about a proposal to ban certain alcoholic products downtown.
The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 601 Fourth Ave. E.
According to a staff report:
The council's landuse committee will meet with representatives of the Washington Beer & Wine Distributors Association and Marine View Beverage.
Earlier this year, the city council moved to ask the state Liquor Control Borad to create an Alcohol Impact Area in part of downtown, where it would ban sales of certain single-serve, high alcohol products. The city is trying to combat the ill effects of chronic inebriation.
The state, which has the final say on the ban, asked the city to have more communication with beer and wine industry representatives.
