Maple Park Board amends liquor ordinance
by David Maas
MAPLE PARK—The Maple Park Village Board on Tuesday passed an ordinance amending the village’s previous liquor control ordinance.
“This will only change the permitted hours of sale of alcohol for Sundays,” Village President Kathy Curtis said.
The board drafted the change after local bar owners asked for increased hours to better accommodate patrons for various sporting events.
“They will now be able to start selling one hour earlier, at 11 am, and serve an hour later, until 11 p.m.,” Curtis said.
While the village had allowed increased hours of sale previously for special occasions, in order for a longer period of time, such as the current football season, an ordinance had to be passed.
