HAMMOND - Police Chief Roddy Devall asked the Hammond City Council to consider rewriting its ordinances regarding the sale of liquor in businesses that are primarily designated as restaurants.

Devall's comments came Tuesday as the council was considering its annual approval of High and Low Alcohol Permits for the 2013 calendar year.

Devall asked City Attorney Andre Coudrain if existing ordinances can be changed so that establishments doing business as restaurants and selling alcohol can be required to close at a specific time.

Current city ordinances require that a restaurant holding a permit to sell liquor must derive 60 percent of its profit from food sales and 40 percent from alcohol sales.

The matter will be on the Nov. 5 agenda.
