No private hard booze sales in Lacey

September 23rd, 2010 by Ken

Merchants in Lacey will not be able to sell hard liquor if some members of the Lacey City Council have their way.

The city wrote a resolution in opposition to Initiatives 1100 and 1105 and put if up for public scrutiny.  Five members of the public testified in favor of the resolution opposing the initiatives, Thursday evening,  citing concerns about availability and potential revenue loss for social services.

Two members of the council – – Jason Hearn and Ron Lawson – – abstained from voting, saying the measures will be before the voters and they didn’t want to tell the voters how to vote.    Three members of the council voted for the opposition resolution including Mary Dean, Cynthia Pratt and Mayor Tom Nelson.   Two members of the council were absent – – Andy Ryder and Virgil Clarkson.

So, three members of the seven member Lacey City Council want you to vote against Initiatives 1100 and 1105, while two members think you should make up your own mind, and two members didn’t get a chance to tell you how to vote.
