Gillette could get relaxed liquor law


Liquor store owners in a KOTA Territory city may soon see restrictions lifted on how long they can keep their business open on Sundays.

The Gillette City Council discussed relaxing the city's limitations on Sunday liquor store hours last week.

Right now liquor stores are only allowed to stay open between noon and 10 p.m. on Sundays.

The council asked the city attorney to draft an ordinance that aligns with Wyoming state law, which allows liquor stores to leave the door open much longer.

"Under state law, all days of the week are the same.  You can open at 6 a.m. and close at 2 a.m. the next day," said city attorney Charlie Anderson.

Local liquor store owners are glad to hear city leaders are on the verge of lifting the Sunday limitations.

"I think anytime that we can have expanded operation hours is going to help our business.  It's more time that we can be open and sell product to the community," said Fireside Bar and Lounge manager Don Edwards.

Anderson says the council could review the ordinance at its July 15 meeting.
