Fairbury Council Changes Alcohol Regulations

By A.J. Harris

Last week at their regular meeting, the Fairbury City Council voted to amend part of the city’s code, specifically about how alcohol is sold.

Previously, the code stated that only those with a Fairbury liquor license could apply for a permit to have alcohol outdoors.

The new wording allows any Illinois liquor license holder to apply.

Immediately after the amendment was made, the board voted to approve the application of the Emancipation Brewing Company for alcohol sales on the street during the Taste of Fairbury event on September 21, according to the Pontiac Daily Leader.
