Shell Mart Gets 'No' On Alcohol License By BRYAN GETER An alcohol license was denied Shell Mart located at 1945 East Main Street Monday evening after a motion to allow the issuing of the license with a 90 day pro- bation period failed to receive a second motion. Councilman Jack Leidner made the motion in favor after the city's alcohol review board earlier had voiced its decision to allow the license with stipulation of a 90 day probation period. Councilman C.E Martin said he had a problem with the issuing the license since Shell Mart was citedfor sell- ing alcohol to a minor during a recent sting operation by the Hogansville police Department, Mayor Wilson St. Clair stated that the present owner, Firoz K. Lilywala, was the owner then, but he didn't sell the alcohol to the minor. Police Chief Guy Spradlin said those eight people who sold the alcohol tcr the minor had gone to court and the judge ordered fines of $662, 90 day probation period and community service was added. Spradlin said if this hap- pens next time, the license will be pulled. City Attorney Dan Lee said he thinks a license can be issued under the proba- tion period. "Even though it is the same owner, a differ- ent person sold the alcohol," Lee said. "You can issue a con- ditional license." After the motion failed, St. Clair asked, "What should we do?" Councilman Frazier rec- ommended tabling the mat- ter until the next meeting. Then, Councilman Jimmy Jackson suggested the mat- ter go back to the alcohol board to illustrate their view and return their decision the council for consideration. The motionpassed with a 3-1-1 vote. Martin voted against and Councilwoman Jean Crocker abstained. oThe board voted to allow the re-zoning at 200 Commerce Street from C-1 to R-2. See COUNCIL, Page 2A
