Placeholder Image
It could be the second time is the charm for removing the 300-foot distance requirement between churches and schools and establishments that sell beer. McMinnville officials voted 5-2 on Tuesday night to delete the sentence “No sale or distribution of beer shall be at places within 300 feet of any school, public or private, kindergarten or church” from city code. Mayor Jimmy Haley, Vice Mayor Ben Newman, and Aldermen Ryle Chastain, Everett Brock and Steve Harvey voted in favor of removing the 300-foot barrier.
