The council Tuesday night gave first reading to a revision in city statutes on the qualifications of someone wanting a liquor license.

Currently, anyone who has ever been convicted of any charge connected to the manufacture or sale of liquor cannot get a liquor license.

The revision would add a five-year look back period in considering someone applying for a license.

The proposed change comes after an appeal by Monique McPike, who was denied a liquor license for her business because she pleaded guilty to selling alcohol to a minor in 2011.

The revision will be presented for a second and final reading December 1st.
