City council passed an ordinance concerning alcohol tax after getting a phone call about the steps to obtain a liquor license.

LAKE CITY, AR (KAIT) - After a phone call asking about the steps to obtain a liquor license, the Lake City City Council took steps to make sure they had a necessary ordinance in place.

It imposed a tax on alcoholic beverages sold within city limits.

The city council voted to pass that ordinance at the Monday night meeting.

As of right now, Mayor Jon Milligan said no business has applied for a liquor license.

But this is the city’s way of being prepared should it happen in the future.
