Business Owners Seek Public Support Against City Council Ordinance

(Gillette, Wyo.) Tomorrow night will be the first public night that Gillette City Council will read through an ordinance to prohibit liquor delivery in the city limits. Currently there is no such provision in City Code to prevent a third party from delivering alcohol. The proposed amendments to this ordinance would prevent retail liquor stores with licenses or third party entities from delivery alcohol outside of licensed premises, or the point of sale. This is in response to an idea presented by Riley Hunter and Grant Edmunds of Creative Beverages in February and March during council work sessions. They are in favor of apps like Drizly , which would allow you to order alcohol delivery to your home. During work sessions the city council and police department were not generally in favor of such a service and have proposed to support the ordinance banning liquor delivery. Creative Beverages hopes to present public support for the service, claiming it may reduce DUIs in the city. They've put together an online survey to get feedback from residents.
