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 all 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. The license may be reissued by the licensing authority at the same location if an applicant for the license 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.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
