COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 160945, AS AMENDED

 

Amending Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Sections 10-332, Restrictions and prohibited acts by all retail licensees, and 10-337, Package sales licenses, prohibitions and requirements, and enacting a new section of like number and subject matter that is in compliance with Missouri State Statute which allows retail sales-by-package license holders to sell growlers.

 

WHEREAS, for purposes of this section a growler is a jug that can be purchased by a person to be filled with a draft beer of their choice for purposes of off premise consumption; and

 

WHEREAS, since Missouri State Statutes allow for a retail sales-by-package license holder to sell growlers, Kansas City, Missouri Ordinances must do the same; and

 

WHEREAS, although Missouri State Statutes allow growlers to be sold in a size between thirty-two to one hundred twenty-eight fluid ounces of draft beer, city ordinance restricts the size to 32 ounces only; and

 

WHEREAS, since selling a growler means a retail sales-by-package licensed premise will now be pouring draft beer onsite which requires a person to be 21 years of age and is ultimately a change in the way the business was originally licensed, a licensee will be required to meet the consent requirement; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
