Girdler optimistic positive results will emerge from ABC


Eubank —

With current applicants approved by the state waiting to move forward opening their stores and stocking their shelves with alcohol, time is of the essence, and Girdler is hoping for a faster resolution than the court system would provide should it come to that and the city can’t work out a deal with the state ABC directly. Girdler expects that path could take up to 60 days based on court dockets and the types of motions filed, and the city’s “best recourse” is to expedite an administration ruling — something that will also save the city money in legal fees.
“We think that with the new commissioner coming in, the process will be quick,” said the mayor, “in order to not only help the applicants but giving direction to the state in terms of how to deal with these issues.”
