The Covington News - - LOCAL NEWS - By Tyler Smith

Pa­trons can now en­joy a fine wine or a cold lager at Jimbo’s Grille at the Mill af­ter the Por­terdale City Coun­cil voted in fa­vor of grant­ing the restau­rant’s beer and wine pour­ing li­cense on Mon­day.

The vote was four in fa­vor and one against for the li­cense. Kay Piper was the lone dis­in­ter.

“I al­ways vote no on is­sues hav­ing to do with al­co­hol, so it is noth­ing per­sonal,” Piper said.

The City Coun­cil was set to hear any ob­jec­tions to the li­cense from the com­mu­nity at a pub­lic hear­ing, but no one de­cided to protest.

Por­terdale Mayor Bobby Hamby said he though the move would cre­ate more busi­ness for the Grille.

“I think it will add some rev­enue to them,” Hamby said. “But I don’t ex­pect it turn into a bar or any­thing. I think peo­ple just might want to have a drink with their food.”

The City Coun­cil also voted to let vot­ers de­cide the is­sue of Sun­day al­co­hol sales in restau­rants in the Novem­ber ref­er­en­dum.
