City commission approves alcohol fee rebates

June 23, 2020–6:36 a.m.


Pouring establishments in the City of Rome will be getting a partial rebate of alcohol fees after the Rome City Commission approved 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 will be for two months.

That translates to $246.60 for a beer or wine pouring license, $493.20 for both, and $411 for a liquor license, counting only the base fees.

There are over 60 establishments who will benefit.
