Exhibition Center Commissioners Vote to Oppose Lincoln Hall Liquor Ordinance

The governing Board of Commissioners of the North Louisiana Exhibition Center last week voted unanimously to oppose an ordinance that would allow Lincoln Hall to serve alcohol at events, Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO) has learned.

Lincoln Hall is a privately operated, parish owned facility adjacent to the Exhibition Center off Farmerville Highway north of Ruston.

In March, the Lincoln Parish Police Jury (LPPJ) Public Works Committee voted to draft an ordinance for the change, and a public hearing on the proposed ordinance will be held at next Tuesday’s (5/9/17) jury meeting.

Any interested citizen can make comments at the hearing.

See here the proposed ordinance.

LPPJ President Randy Roberson (District Four) said the commission was concerned about the ordinance, as many of the arena’s events are family oriented. Roberson is a member of the Exhibition Center Commission.

The arena and the hall share a common parking area.
