Ephraim continues to weigh new alcohol ordinance

Buying packaged alcoholic beverages during an upcoming visit to Ephraim is on the horizon, but it will likely still take a while. The Ephraim Village Board has been trying to tackle the issue of Class A Alcohol licenses for several weeks as they have tried to iron out details like determining certain limits on how much and where packaged liquors can be sold in the area. At their August meeting, some trustees expressed a lack of interest in Ephraim having a liquor store as other communities do. Village Administrator Brent Bristol said last week’s meeting continued looking at the metrics that would be used to either accept or decline a license application if an Ephraim business wanted to sell products under a Class A Alcohol license.

Bristol believes it will take a few more meetings after the village staff crafts a draft ordinance before the final regulations could be agreed upon and licenses would be made available.
