MARSHALL, Ill. (WTHI) - The city of Marshall is taking another look at alcohol sales.
Monday night, city council members voted to approve a change to the city's ordinance regarding Class B licenses.
Mayor John Trefz says it spans back to Casey's General Store getting their hard liquor license.
In this case, Trefz says the amendment calls for hard liquor to be locked up in another area within the facility. The only way customers can purchase the alcohol would be if an employee were to access the area and bring the bottle out for you themselves.
Trefz says this is also to prevent minors from stealing alcohol within the store, as well as making sure purchases go to age appropriate hands.
"I have a council that really wants to keep a thumb, so to speak, on the drinking," he said, "and you know, as a retired policeman, it's a good thing. It's a very good thing."
Mayor Trefz says Casey's is expanding their current facility. By approving the ammendment at Monday's meeting, Trefz says this will allow Casey's to begin working on the project.
