Pineville may be reconsidering its alcohol ban

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - Pineville city auditor Mark McKay says the city council should consider lifting its ban on selling alcohol.

McKay gave the council a clean audit report on Tuesday, but he noted that the numbers clearly indicate Pineville is moving into the red more each year with its budget.

McKay noted that even though there are fewer employees than 10 years ago, retirement costs have gone up and the public safety budget has doubled.

McKay said that until the city has alcohol sales there will be no national restaurant chains, other than fast food companies.
