MADISONVILLE-Is Madisonville changing its liquor store rules on the fly or just adapting to the times?

During its December meeting, the mayor and aldermen made two changes that raised some eyebrows, but were ultimately accepted.

Tim Maxwell, owner of Sunset Wine and Spirits, is looking to buy his sister's share of the store on Highway 411, but he isn't a resident of Madisonville. The town's ordinance states that anyone applying for a liquor store license in Madisonville, must live in the town.

But does that rule apply to a co-owner after the license has already been granted?

"I'm just looking for a clarification of the rule," Maxwell said. "I don't want anything changed for me. I just want to know what my options are."
