When the Mayor came to the Chamber of Commerce a few years back to ask for help in changing the liquor seating laws to allow smaller bistro-type restaurants to obtain full liquor and beer and wine licenses and allow bar seating, I chaired the committee that helped changed the regulations. This change allowed several new restaurants to open and prosper in the community."
