Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:

SECTION 1. (a) Notwithstanding section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Otis may grant 1 additional license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises pursuant to section 15 of said chapter 138 to L & M Auto Inc. d/b/a Papa’s Healthy Food & Fuel, located at 2000 East Otis road. The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except said section 17. 

(b) The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of the license granted pursuant to this act to any other location but it may grant the license to a new applicant at the same location if the applicant files with the licensing authority a letter from the department of revenue and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those departments and that all applicable taxes, fees and contributions have been paid. 

(c) If the license granted pursuant to this act is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use at the location of original issuance, it shall be returned physically with all legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto to the licensing authority and the licensing authority may then grant the license to a new applicant at the same location under the same conditions specified in this act. 

(d) The license granted pursuant to this act shall be issued not later than 1 year after the effective date of this act; provided, however, that if the license is originally granted before 1 year after the effective date of this act, it may be granted to a new applicant pursuant to subsection (b) or (c) any time thereafter. 

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
