PENDER COUNTY, NC - (WECT) - Pender County voters will be able to decide if they want to buy beer by the glass in some businesses.
Currently, businesses that are not restaurants hotels or motels are only allowed to serve wine by the glass if they get an ABC permit. They are not allowed to serve beer because of an older county law.
Early this year, the owner of Quarter Moon, a business in Topsail Beach, brought the issue to town commissioners. Lori Fisher said that she was awarded an ABC permit to serve beer by the glass, but it was later revoked by the ABC board because they discovered the county law that prohibits it.
In order to change the law, county commissioners first had to approve an election. They approved an election during Monday's meeting, it will now be up to the voters if the law stays.
