An Act PROVIDING FOR A BALLOT QUESTION IN THE TOWN OF ARLINGTON AUTHORIZING THE GRANTING OF 3 LICENSES 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 11 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the board of selectmen of the town of Arlington may cause to be  placed on the ballot at the 2010 town election the following question:

“Shall the board of selectmen be authorized to grant up to 3 licenses for the sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises in replacement of up to 3 existing licenses for the sale of wines and malt beverages not to be drunk on the premises?

 

(b) .  If a majority of votes cast in answer to the question is in the affirmative, then the town of Arlington shall be taken to have authorized the granting of up to 3 licenses for the sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises; provided, however, that such licenses shall be granted only to current holders of  licenses for the sale of wines and malt beverages not to be drunk on the premises issued pursuant to chapter 28 of the acts of 2006.  Upon issuance of a license authorized in this act, the previously issued wines and malt beverages license held by that licensee shall be void and the licensing authority shall not be authorized to grant that license to any other person, firm or corporation.
