McMinnville officials are considering a measure that would allow beer to be sold closer to schools and churches. The 300-foot distance requirement is one vote away from being removed.During Tuesday night’s regular session, Alderman Rick Barnes motioned to strike a sentence from the city’s existing 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.”His motion passed 4-3.
