Non-profits get fund-raising help in Senoia

A decision by the Senoia City Council at the March 5 meeting will give non-profit civic organizations a bit more leverage in fund-raising. The council voted to allow six events per year where non-profits can serve alcoholic beverages.

Prior to the amendment the city’s Alcoholic Beverage Ordinance stipulated that non-profits could sell alcohol at events two times per year. The ordinance change raised that number to six times per year. The ordinance change came after a previous request from local non-profits.

The amended ordinance also included a section on the types of entertainment, attire and conduct prohibited on the premises of businesses licensed to serve, sell or dispense alcohol. The amendment centered on the prohibition of nudity and numerous forms and sexual acts.

The council also approved the closure of Main Street from Travis to Seavy on March 16 for the filming of “Drop Dead Diva.” The cast and crew will also be filming at the city police and municipal court building on March 15.
