At the March 5th, Gillette City Council meeting, the council had the third and final reading of an ordinance to define bottle clubs and provide for their operation. Councilman Robin Kuntz proposed an amendment to remove some language from the proposed ordinance. For the benefit of the public, Mayor John Opseth requested that city attorney Charlie Anderson, explain what impact the removal of the language would have on the ability to operate a bottle club in Gillette.
“Instead of allowing them, only in businesses that have liquor licenses, as a result of this amendment, it will not be legal to have bottle clubs in liquor licensed establishments or anywhere else.”---Anderson Last Updated on Wednesday, 05 March 2014 12:42Read more: No Gillette Bottle Clubs
