An ordinance that makes permanent the delivery of malt beverages, wines and liquor in the city of Sheridan was passed on third and final reading by Sheridan’s city council Monday night.

City Attorney Brendon Kerns said the ordinance applies only to retail liquor license holders, wineries and microbreweries.

For clarification, Councilman Thayer Shafer asked if he would be able to order curbside delivery of wine with a meal from a restaurant. Kerns said no.

In a second matter relating to the city’s alcohol ordinance, the council gave third and final reading approval to an amendment to Chapter 4 of the ordinance that would allow a grocery store to install a door that leads into a part of the store where alcoholic beverages are sold.

Kerns said Wyoming statute doesn’t ban grocery stores from having liquor licenses and selling alcoholic beverages. The requirement is that the stores must sell the alcoholic in a building or room separate from the rest of the store.

In other action Monday night, the council heard good news regarding sales and use tax receipts and presented a Wyoming Main Street accreditation certificate to Zoila Perry, executive director of the Downtown Sheridan Association.

The city also receied a National Main Street Certificate.

The council also approved transfer of a retail liquor license to Verdello Inc. and gave first- and second-reading approval to zoning changes. Sheridan Media will have more on those in future stories.
