Lafayette Councils Approve Alcohol Delivery By Food Services
Food delivery services like Waitr, Doordash, and Grubhub may now deliver alcoholic beverages to their customers.
The Lafayette city and parish councils approved the amendment to LCG's alcohol delivery ordinance during their respective meetings Tuesday night. Each council voted unanimously in favor of the ordinance.
Under the terms of the ordinance, food delivery may deliver beer and/or wine to customers only if those customers order food. Hard liquor deliveries are not allowed. The revised ordinance requires anyone who delivers alcoholic beverages to customers to be at least 21 years old and have a valid bar card.
Previously, only grocery stores and liquor stores were allowed to deliver alcohol to customers.
In other council business: The city and parish councils unanimously voted to renew LCG's contract with Acadian Ambulance.
The city council selected Stuart Breaux and William Leyendecker to serve on its Protect the City Committee. Breaux is general counsel for Southern Lifestyle Development Company. Leyendecker is a retired educator and former recreation centers manager for LCG.
