Jenkins City Council Reads Alcohol Ordinance

{Kentucky}...Jenkins City Council members in Letcher County have heard a first reading for the city's drafted alcohol ordinance after voters approved sales by the drink two months ago. Under the proposed ordinance, seating requirement for a restaurant is 50, and catering sales will count for the business's food percentage. Mayor GC Kincer says people have already asked him about future sites for restaurants, but he says they probably will not go downtown. He says there is room along Highway 23, and he believes the area will attract hotels, restaurants, and maybe even a shopping center.
