Alcohol Delivery Debate Continues In Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on February 1, 2012

The man wanting to deliver alcohol in Oglesby says it’s all about safety.

In a letter sent to people in Oglesby, Steve Beckcom of Brady’s Liquors says the big reason they want to deliver alcohol is for safety reasons.  Beckcom says most times when people are drinking and run out, it can get dangerous when they get behind the wheel to get more.   But he says by offering the delivery option they can hopefully cut down on that happening.

While some are leery of the idea including Oglesby Police Chief Jim Knoblauch, the liquor store owners point out that Utica currently allows alcohol delivery.
