An Act authorizing the Town of Dracut to grant a license for the sale of wines and malt 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. Notwithstanding section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, the licensing authority of the town of Dracut may grant a license for the sale of wines and malt beverages, not to be drunk on the premises, under section 15 of said chapter 138 to Muddy River Coffee and Convenience, Inc. located at 197 Merrimack avenue in the town of Dracut.     Except as otherwise provided in this act, the license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except said section 17.

The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of the license to any other location within 1 year after the date of the first issuance of said license, but the license may be granted to a new applicant at the same location if the applicant has followed all rules prescribed by the board of selectmen, and has submitted 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. The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer, pledging or issuance of shares of stock of Muddy River Coffee and Convenience, Inc. within 1 year after the date of the first issuance of said license.

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 of the town of Dracut, which may then grant the license to a new applicant at the same location and under the same conditions as specified in this section.

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