AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE CITY OF EASTHAMPTON TO GRANT AN ADDITIONAL LICENSE FOR THE SALE OF ALL ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES 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:
 

              Notwithstanding the provisions of section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the city of Easthampton may grant an additional license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises to Thomas E. Doherty, d.b.a. Popcorn Noir for the premises located at 30-32 Cottage Street in the city of Easthampton, under section 12 of said chapter 138.  Said license shall be subject to all provisions of said chapter 138 except said section 17.

                                         

              Thomas E. Doherty shall have a period of 3 years from the effective date of this act within which to apply for the license.  If Thomas E. Doherty has not applied for the license within the 3-year period, the license shall remain with the licensing authority and may be granted to another applicant to the same location under the same conditions as approved in this act.

             

              The local alcohol licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of said license 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 indicating that the license is in good standing with the department and that all applicable taxes have been paid.

                           

              If the license granted under this section is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use, 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 a new applicant at the same location and under the same conditions as specified in this act.
