Winder City Council’s two monthly meetings are this week at the Winder Community Center. And for the first time, both the Monday and Tuesday meetings will begin at 6 p.m. At tonight's public meeting, the council will discuss a major overhaul of the city code regarding alcohol sales. Among other things, the new provisions allow business owners in the Downtown Overlay District to apply for licenses to operate downtown bars, pubs, taverns, public entertainment facilities and brew pubs.
Also on the agenda for discussion tonight — and for action Tuesday — is a code amendment that would allow the discharge of firearms on tracts of at least five acres that are in areas zoned for agricultural or industrial uses. Currently, the city code prohibits the discharging of firearms inside the city limits except for self-defense.
