Pouring establishments in the City of Rome could be getting a partial rebate of alcohol fees if the Rome City Commission approves a recommendation from the finance committee Monday night.
The refunds are seen as a way of helping businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and related shutdown.
The refund would be for two months.
That translates to $246.60 for a beer or wine pouring license and $493.20 for both.
Establishments that pour liquor could see an additional $411 rebate, counting only the base fees.
There are over 60 establishments who would benefit.
In other action, the commission is also expected to discuss the 2020 mileage rate, and hear a report on the Rome DeSoto River District.
A Unity Against Racial Injustice proclamation is also on the agenda for the meeting which begins at 6:30 pm.
