The Town of Jonesboro’s controversial mayor Leslie Thompson tonight proclaimed that the town of Jonesboro was deemed “wet,” since there could be found no history of a local option election that voted otherwise.
The town’s attorney Doug Stokes backed Thompson’s opinion.
What this means is that application to the Louisiana Office of Alcohol & Tobacco Control for the following classes can be made:
Class AG – Bars, 18 Years and Older, On Premise Consumption Only
Class AR – Restaurant
Class B – Package House, Off Premise Consumption Only, Factory Sealed Containers Only
Class C – Package Liquor Store, Off Premise Consumption Only
Those applications will be approved until an election is held that directs otherwise, the mayor said.
We will have additional reporting tomorrow.
