Businesses raise concerns on liquor law in Dorchester Co.

CAMBRIDGE, Md. – Some people are asking the Board of License Commissioners to allow businesses to serve alcohol for special events.

Right now, commercial businesses are required to have a liquor license to sell any kind of alcohol on their property.

However, some businesses like salons, boutiques and retailers have expressed interest in holding events where alcohol is served.

We are told events with drinks could help boost sales especially during the off season, so that is why many would like to see the board consider a change.

“All we’re trying to do is bring people together and get them outside and maybe get them away from the internet and show them there is a great community, great businesses downtown that offer other things,” said Dovile Cropper, the owner of Butterfly Boutique.

Dorchester County Board of License Commissioners is considering adopting regulations to offer waivers to businesses to allow them to sell alcohol.

There will be a public hearing on this at the Dorchester County Office Building on November 18th.
