Developer Uses Chamber Of Commerce Banquet To Call For Oconee County Liquor Referendum

Developer Uses Chamber Of Commerce Banquet To Call For Oconee County Liquor Referendum
Frank Bishop, developer of Epps Bridge Centre, used his keynote speech before the Oconee County Chamber of Commerce tonight to call for a county referendum to approve the sale of liquor by the drink in restaurants.

Bishop first asked those in attendance to shop locally to help guarantee the vitality of his shopping center.

He then said the county should approve the sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants because that “would be beneficial to the long-term health” of his shopping center and “for all of the shopping opportunities there.”

The county would gain, he said, from the tax revenue his shopping mall will generate.
