      Comment
  • The Ordinance Committee of the Carrier Mills village board met in two special sessions Tuesday in part to hear from Derek Field’s request for a revision of the village's regulation on pole barn type buildings constructed in the Carrier Mills business district.
    Field presented preliminary drawings and plans to allow the committee to further understand what and where he wanted to build a central shop and office for his electrical contracting business.
    Upon review of Field’s proposal and discussion amongst the committee members, Field was told that the committee was inclined to allow the revisions to the local building code. The Ordinance committee asked for finalized blueprints to presented at the next regular board meeting and gave approval to place Field’s request for a revision in the village ordinances on the agenda.
    The Ordinance Committed then moved on to the subject of Convenient Store or Package Goods Liquor Sales Permit cost. All of the committee was in favor of recommending that the board raise the cost of liquor licenses for the establishments that desired them by double.
    Mayor Louis Shaw stated that he had been given to understand the Casey's Convenient Store urgently desired to have a Carrier Mills liquor license that would allow that establishment to sell hard liquor as well as the wine and beer currently from that establishment. All of the ordinance board were in favor of this; the only real debate was from the amount to charge for the privilege. Several board members were heard to say, “Double the fee at least, if not higher!”
    Board Discussion centered around Shaw's requirement the at least one of the store managers be a Carrier Mill resident and that it would be necessary to double the cost of the liquor license to assist with the greater enforcement costs.
