Alpharetta council stakes out positions on beer, transportation

The Alpharetta City Council Monday night OK’d positions on two issues pending at the Gold Dome.

Council members unanimously approved a resolution in favor of Senate Bill 63, which would allow Georgia brewers to sell beer to the public in tasting rooms for both on and off-premises consumption. The bill would also allow brewpubs to offer package sales for off-premises imbibing.

The council also approved a resolution opposing the Georgia Transportation Funding Act of 2015 (House Bill 170) and specifically its exemption or removal of gas from local sales taxes. City officials estimate such a move would cost the city at least $840,000 annually.
