Mixed drink applications now available

November 30, 2004

Tifton- Tifton and Tift County finalized and enacted the ordinances that allow the sell and consumption of alcohol at business where at least 50% of sales come from food.

In addition to obtaining a license from city or county businesses must also obtain a license from the state, a process that could take four to six weeks.

"We expect the soonest that we would have a license issued where a restaurant could serve mixed drinks or distilled spirits would be after the first of the year," says Mayor Paul Johnson.

The applications just became available Tuesday and so far nearly half a dozen businesses have pick one up.
