An Act authorizing the town of Saugus to grant an additional license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises.


 

Whereas , The deferred operation for this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith to authorize the town of Saugus to grant an addition license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

 

              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. Notwithstanding section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority in the town of Saugus may grant an additional license for the sale of alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises under section 12 of said chapter 138 to an area in the B2 zone of the town at the Square One Mall. The license shall not be transferable off the premises and shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except section 17.

Notwithstanding any general or special law or rule or regulation to the contrary, the licensing authority in the town of Saugus shall not approve the transfer of the license to any other location. The license may be re-issued by the local alcohol licensing authority at the same location if an applicant for the license files with the licensing authority a letter in writing 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 in the town of Saugus. Notwithstanding section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, the licensing authority may then grant the license to a new applicant at the same location and under the same conditions as specified in the preceding paragraph.

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