The Chiefland City Commission amended the alcohol sales ordinance in a 3-2 vote at the Nov. 26 meeting.

Effectively immediately, the ordinance allows consumption on the premises of any place holding an alcoholic beverage license under state law, as follows:

Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to Midnight; Friday from 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. and from 7 a.m. to Midnight; Saturday from 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. and from 7 a.m. to Midnight; and Sunday from 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. and from 1 p.m. to Midnight.

Alcohol sales for consumption off-premises is now as follows:

Monday through Thursday 7 a.m. to Midnight, Friday through Sunday from 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. and from 7 a.m. to Midnight.

“If January 1 falls on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, then consumption and service shall also be allowed from Midnight to 1 a.m. on January 1,” the ordinance reads.

Commissioner Tim West, Vice-Mayor Chris Jones and Mayor Betty Walker voted in favor of the changes and said the community has been wanting this for some time. “I hope we have some businesses come here,” Walker said.
