City approves downtown alcohol license

MILLEDGEVILLE — This week’s Milledgeville City Council meeting ended briskly after the board accepted an alcohol license request. Council agreed to move the application forward pending a proper notary.

BTJ Holdings, Inc. doing business as Gringos at 107 W. Hancock St applied for beer, wine and liquor consumption on premise and Sunday sales.

This location is in the old downtown Quiznos location owned by Jason Medders.

Denese Shinholster, District 3, noticed an issue with the application’s notary.

Shinholster said normally notarization by a family member that’s party to the business isn’t allowed.

City Attorney Jimmy Jordan confirmed the legal question.

“It’s typically not recommended even with family. The notary is listed as an individual involved in the business,” Jordan said. “What I’d suggest you doing so as to not hold up the application would be to approve it subject to the notary section of the application being redone in order to provide for a proper notary signature and seal.”

Council amended the Tuesday meeting motion to include the public notary item.
