The beer ordinance binge could end Tuesday night when McMinnville officials meet for what should be the second and final read on removing a 300-foot distance requirement.On Sept. 23, officials voted to strike a sentence from city policy. That sentence is, “No sale or distribution of beer shall be made at places within 300 feet of any school, public or private, kindergarten or churches.”The measure passed 4-3. Mayor Jimmy Haley, Vice Mayor Ben Newman and Aldermen Billy Wood and Rick Barnes were in favor of it.
