Shelbyville's "sin tax" may be down for the count.
The first reading of an ordinance repealing the alcohol sales regulatory license fee took place and was approved at Shelbyville City council's meeting Thursday.
Two versions of the ordinance were drawn up for the meeting.
The first draft contained only a single section, which repeals the alcohol fee.
"Some of council members had advised me that they'd like to have an ordinance just with a repeal without putting the refund in the order," Mayor Tom Hardesty said at the meeting.
