Stephens County Commission To Meet Today

The Stephens County Commission will hold hearings at its meeting today to consider suspending or revoking beer and wine licenses for three locations accused of selling alcohol to minors.

Stephens County Commissioners are set to meet at 5:30 p.m. today in the second-floor courtroom of the historic Stephens County Courthouse in downtown Toccoa.

Earlier this month, Stephens County Sheriff Randy Shirley announced that his office and the N.C.I.S. Drug Team cited clerks at the old Bucks Store, the Royal Foods at the intersection of Highway 106 and the By-pass, and the Shell Mart at the Jeanette Jamieson Intersection, for selling alcohol to a minor.

The citations came after an undercover operation with agents and a post certified deputy under the age of 21.

Now, county commissioners will consider suspending or revoking the beer and wine licenses for those three stores.

Prior to those hearings, county commissioners will also hold a first reading of a proposed body art code and regulations ordinance.

Commissioners will start the meeting with a public hearing on that proposed ordinance at 5:30 p.m.

The work session to discuss agenda items will follow the public hearing and the business meeting to vote on agenda items will immediately follow the work session.

The public hearing, work session, and business meeting, are all open to the public.
