Janesville considers lifting alchol license quota

A long standing tradition in Janesville may soon fall.  The city's Alcohol License and Advisory Committee Tuesday is scheduled to consider lifting the quota on Class A licenses.  The city currently has 19 such licenses allowing the packaged sale of alcohol.  City Economic Development Coordinator Ryan Garcia says the move is prompted by the desire to allow the marketplace to decide what's best for such sales.  He says a survey of ten cities similar to Janesville showed most have no such license limitations.  If the ALAC approves the move, the city council is expected to have a public hearing later this month.
