Committee Proposing Private Businesses Sell Wholesale Beer, Wine in Montgomery County

Some lawmakers in Montgomery County want private businesses to sell wholesale special order beer and wine instead of the county.

The ad hoc liquor control committee started meeting after the News4 I-Team exposed problems with the Department of Liquor Control last year.

Some of the biggest complaints from restaurants involve glitches with the new county computer system for ordering alcohol, especially "special order products."

Tuesday the ad hoc committee will introduce a resolution recommending lawmakers amend the state law to allow private businesses to sell such products in the county.

A public hearing on the resolution will be held next month.
