Peaches back before the alcohol control commission Monday

Peaches at 325 Broad Street will have another hearing before the Rome Alcohol Control Commission on Monday.

According to the meeting agenda, the license hearing is for after-hours consumption of alcohol.

According to Rome City Clerk Joe Smith, on the morning of October 22, Rome Police noticed there were still customers in the establishment after 2 a.m., and some were consuming alcohol.

“No citation was issued, but the owner was asked to appear before the ACC to explain why there was consumption going on after 2 a.m., said Smith.

The ACC could take action if they deem it necessary.

That could range from a monetary penalty of up to $2,000 to a license suspension.

In May, the Rome City Commission terminated the establishment’s liquor license on grounds that it was not meeting the 50-50 food-to-drink ratio.

Peaches had just gotten the license back after it was reinstated by the city commission in late September.

That reinstatement came with a change that would allow Peaches to use the proceeds of ticket sales from concerts to count toward the 50-50 ratio, along with food sales.

Peaches never lost its beer and wine license since beer and wine sales are not part of the food-to-drink requirement.

Other agenda items for Monday’s ACC meeting include a new beer and wine package license request at Sunny’s Food Mart at 1107 Turner McCall Boulevard and a new beer and wine package license request at Sunoco at 2039 Maple Avenue.

The meeting begins at 5 p.m. at Rome City Hall.
