TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
Twenty-six Tyler businesses have applied for permits to sell beer and wine for off-premise consumption, and more businesses are expected to apply this week.
Since city leaders updated the city code, many grocery and convenience stores have applied for alcohol sale permits. The application process starts with the city and goes through the county, state comptroller's office, and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
City planner Heather Nick says the city will be visiting businesses who have applied for alcohol sale permits this week. Those visits are to make sure the stores apply to sell beer and wine fulfill their distance requirements from churches and schools. If they do not, the businesses can request a variance.
"We do a notification for anyone within 200 feet of that property," said Nick. "Any owners of property around the subject property would be notified that there would be a requested variance and it's also listed in the paper. Then this goes to the planning and zoning commission to make a recommendation to the city. Then, the city council has final say over granting or not of any variances."
