SUPPORT SUNDAY BEVERAGE SALES IN SANTA ROSA COUNTY
SUPPORT OF SUNDAY BEVERAGE SALES FOR SANTA ROSA COUNTY
The Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners http://www.santarosa.fl.gov/governing-src/BOCC.cfm?Menu=110 is taking up a proposal on February 23, 2017 to allow Sunday alcohol sales countywide. The commission meeting will be held at the Santa Rosa County Administrative Center Board Room, 6495 Caroline Street, Milton.
Currently, the sale of alcoholic beverages is inconsistently applied throughout Santa Rosa County, Florida. The allowance for Sunday alcohol sales varies depending on location (ex. City of Milton, South of Yellow River, unincorporated areas). At their January 23, 2017 meeting the Commission heard from those restaurants supporting the move: https://www.santarosa.fl.gov/agendas/backupdocs/Ba...
The standardization of days and times would allow for greater economic development opportunities as corporate restaurants and local businesses would expand to serve both residents and tourists in Santa Rosa County. This would lead to a stronger tax base and more employment opportunities for our community.
The undersigned individuals support the concept of allowing Sunday alcohol sales in Santa Rosa County bars and restaurants as an effort to meet the needs of local residents and tourists as they enjoy our local community.
