FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing to consider an amendment to the Forsyth County alcohol ordinance that would require the annual renewal of employee sales identification.

The hearing takes place at the board's regular meeting at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21.

Forsyth County's alcoholic beverages law currently does not require annual renewals of employee alcohol sales permits.

The change would impact any alcohol package store and any employees who serve alcohol on premises.

The proposed changes would also require employees to ensure staff are up-to-date on their licenses and permits.

The purpose of the public hearing shall be for public review and comment concerning a proposed amendment to the Forsyth County alcohol ordinance to require the annual renewal of employee sales ID(s); to provide for severability; to repeal conflicting ordinances and for other purposes.

The public hearing will be held in the Forsyth County Administration Building, 110 E. Main Street, Suite 220 in Cumming.
