Lufkin could soon have liquor permit, according to Mayor
AS REPORTED IN THE LUFKIN DAILY NEWS:
Pitser Garrison Civic Center could be “just a few weeks” from having a Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission permit to serve alcohol, according to Lufkin Mayor Jack Gorden.
Currently, anyone who wants to host an event that serves alcoholic beverages has two choices: to apply for a temporary permit through the TABC, or use a restaurant or club that has its own license.
City and civic center officials first approached the Lufkin Police Department about the ramifications of applying for a permit, according to Police Chief Scott Marcotte, and the city applied for its liquor license this summer. Gorden said he and other members of the city council discussed the permit during their retreat on April 7 at Kurth Lake. The permit’s main focus, Gorden said, is to cut down on the instances of underage people having access to alcohol at civic center events.
