Tyler, TX (KETK) — 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.
