McMinnville’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen had its first look at package liquor stores and wine in grocery stores inside the city limits.Both measures passed unanimously by Mayor Jimmy Haley and Aldermen Kate Alsbrook, Ryle Chastain, Steve Harvey, Mike Neal and Everett Brock. Vice Mayor Ben Newman was absent.The board’s first shot at liquor resulted in no changes being made to the ordinances as presented by Finance Committee members last week. There were no provisions that would limit the number of liquor store licenses issued, or require Warren County residency by those applying for a license.
