The Tyler City Council on Wednesday morning approved an amendment to the city's alcohol ordinances for certain locations in the city.

The city council meeting took place at 9:00 a.m. at City Hall.

All members voted in favor of an amendment that changed the previous city rule, which limited alcohol sales to distances more than 300 feet from a school, day care, church, or hospital.

However, the city on Wednesday voted to allow buildings that were at least 20,000 sq ft. in size and had a natural buffer or fence to sell alcohol.

The businesses in Tyler that would be affected by the change are Sams Club, Super Mercado Monterrey Grocery Store.

Who didn't see this coming? A nation of laws with no rules. How can we ever know the eventuality of any ordinance, that no under-the-table money was paid, that a wall will stand longer than next week.
