The Nolensville Board of Commissioners approved the second reading of an ordinance that amended the town’s beer ordinance on Thursday night.
The most notable change to the ordinance is the removal of the requirement for permit holders to make at least 50 percent of their income from food sales, as well as some amendments and clarifications about the town’s beer board.
Nolensville Police Chief Roddy Parker spoke to some of his concerns with the proposed amendment during January’s Board of Commissioners meeting where he said he wanted the board to understand the potential impact on public safety and the needs of NPD, foreseeing a possible increase in police services.
Nolensville Mayor Derek Adams addressed the change in a Facebook post on Friday that he said will offer more freedom to businesses.
"This is one of the major issues that sparked my interest in local politics, and it is rewarding to see that policy actually change," Adams said.
