Single Serve Liquor Ordinance Back to Committee


Single serve containers in a convenience store cooler

A controversial ordinance about the sale of single-serve containers of alcohol is headed back to a Springfield City Council committee. 

 

Alderman Kris Theilen says the ordinance needs to be reworked.  His original proposal would have banned the sale of 40-ounce bottles, tallboy cans and other individual servings of liquor at gas stations or convenience stores, only permitting them at package liquor establishments. 

 

Now Theilen says he’s working on a modified proposal that would encourage the use of aluminum or other non-glass containers for such products.  He says careless discarding of the glass bottles creates a nuisance and a danger.
