Beer issue revisited
Placeholder Image
McMinnville officials are revisiting a controversial issue pertaining to removing a 300-foot distance requirement between churches, schools and places that sell beer. During its first consideration before the board in late 2014, the measure passed 4-3 on first read and failed 4-3 on final read. Switching sides and stopping the movement in its tracks was Mayor Jimmy Haley.When contacted Tuesday, Haley says he is considering the measure and has yet to make a final decision on which way he will vote.
