January 14, 2015

A training session will be held on Feb. 19 at the La Quinta Inn in Bryant to teach local servers and or bartenders how to prevent drunk driving, underage drinking, and intoxication.

“There is a liability with alcohol service and this class basically protects them,” Conway resident and instructor Steve Westbrook said. “It gives them ideas on what they can or can’t do.”

Session participants will become certified in the Training for Intervention Procedures or TIPS program, the leading alcohol server training program in the country.

Benton is ready for alcohol sales

January 13, 2015

During a meeting Monday night, the Benton City Council approved a set of rules and regulations on the sale of alcohol in the city. Now the city is prepared for businesses that want to sell alcohol.

Since the week after the election, a group of people within the city has been working to create these regulations, said Mayor David Mattingly.

Using other cities’ policies as a blue print, they tried to reference any type of circumstances that could happen and to establish permits and fees.

“I think it is necessary for this city to be ready,” Mattingly said.
