AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE TOWN OF MILLBURY TO GRANT AN ADDITIONAL LICENSE 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 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Millbury may grant 1 additional license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises pursuant to section 15 of said chapter 138 to Goretti Supermarkets, Inc. located at 1 Providence street in the town. The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except said section 17.

(b)  The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of the 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 and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those departments and that all applicable taxes, fees and contributions have been paid.

(c)  If a licensee terminates or fails to renew the license granted under this act or the license 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 under the same conditions as specified in this act.

(d)  The license granted pursuant to this act shall be issued within 1 year after the effective date of this act; provided, however, that a license originally granted within that time period may be granted to a new applicant pursuant to subsection (b) or subsection (c) any time thereafter.

SECTION 2.  Upon the issuance of the license authorized under this act, the licensee shall return physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority of the town of Millbury, its license for the sale of wine and malt beverages not to be drunk on the premises under section 15 of chapter 138 of the General Laws.

SECTION 3.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
