An Act authorizing the town of Huntington to grant one additional license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises.

 

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 said chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Huntington may grant 1 additional license in said town for the sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises pursuant to section 15 of said chapter 138. Said license shall be exercised at the premises located at 3 East Main Street, Huntington, Massachusetts, and shall be subject to such requirements and conditions as the licensing authority shall deem appropriate. The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138, except said section 17.

(b) The license authorized hereunder is nontransferable. However, the licensing authority may grant said 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 the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those entities and that all applicable taxes have been paid.

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

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