During the Lassen County Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board was asked to reconsider a previous determination that disallowed the Shell Gas Station in Doyle to sell hard liquor.
The Board had previously ruled that the Gas Station did not serve public convenience or necessity.
However, in light of new information, they were asked to consider the matter once again.
One of the owners brought forth a petition signed by 400 residents of Doyle that deemed the selling of alcohol to be a public convenience and necessity.
In addition, the Gas Station has already been selling beer for over 12 years with no citations or problems.
The owner also stated that the hard liquor would be kept behind the counter and stored in a locked cabinet.
To purchase alcohol, individuals would have to ask the store clerk to unlock the cabinet and retrieve the desired drink.
Alcohol sales were approved in a roll call vote of 3-1, with Supervisor Albaugh voting no.
Also during the meeting, the Board was asked to repeal numerous County Code Subsections.
According to Staff, the codes to be repealed have become redundant since the State of California now has equivalent laws in place that supersede County Codes.
County Code subsections to be repealed include:
* A subsection on vehicle weight limitations for certain identified county roads
* A subsection on the creation of a traffic officer and their designated duties and powers of arrest
* A subsection detailing the stop and look requirements for school buses and other conveyances at railroad crossings
The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the repealing of the County Code Subsections.
