North Courtland studies alcohol sales

NORTH COURTLAND, AL (WAFF) - The North Courtland City Council is studying a proposal to sell alcohol in the city.

Lenwood Herron, state planning consultant, presented an idea of creating a commercial development authority and district to generate revenue for the city.

"The city won't need a referendum under the law because it's a special district," Herron said about the possibility of pushing alcohol sales in the district through the Legislature. "Setting up a district places emphasis on being economically competitive. Money will come in every month long term. This allows the district to give incentives."

Herron, who lives in New Brockton in southeast Alabama but travels the state, said a district in the North Courtland area will offer plenty of potential for growth.
