Liquor Store Zoning Is Agreed Upon

The Livingston Municipal Planning Commission approved to send a zoning recommendation to the Mayor and Board of Alderman that would allow liquor stores to be placed in all commercial areas, excluding medical commercial areas in town, after some discussion regarding the location of package liquor retail stores on Monday night.
