There could soon be changes coming to how you buy liquor in downtown Davenport.   

Davenport City Council members are scheduled to again vote on Wednesday night, September 25, 2013, on an ordinance that says there must be at least a quarter mile between carry out liquor stores that are not groceries or pharmacies.

The ordinance specifically targets carry-out liquor in the area from Marquette to Federal Streets, south of Sixth Street.

The changes would limit the number of carry-out liquor store licenses given out and would better define what a carry-out store is.

In April, 2013, council members decided to place a moratorium on liquor licenses in this area.

They were concerned about the possibility of too many in the Centennial Gateway Neighborhood.

That moratorium expires October 1, 2013.
