the Sale of Single Containers of Alcohol

Ward 5 Roundtable Discussion on Legislation to Govern the Sale of Single Containers of Alcohol

Dear Ward 5 Community Residents and Class A & B Alcohol Licenses:

I will be holding a roundtable discussion on Tuesday, May 27, 2008 at 7 pm at the Isle of Patmos Baptist Church, located at 12 Street and Rhode Island Avenue NE. The purpose of the roundtable is to get input from residents and business owners on legislation to govern the sale of single containers of alcoholic beverages in Ward 5.

Legislation has been introduced for Wards 4, 7 and 8 to prohibit the sale of an individual container of the package if the capacity of the individual container is 70 ounces or less, as well as prohibit the division of a manufacturer's package of more than one container of beer, malt liquor or ale.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and concerns on this very important issue.
