November 4, 2014 Special Election

The City of Frisco will hold a Special Election on November 4, 2014 so qualified voters may vote For or Against a measure allowing the Frisco City Council to consider  - if it later decides to do so - whether to authorize the sale of alcohol until 2:00 a.m. on any day by businesses that hold a permit to sell mixed alcoholic beverages.  Below is how the measure will read on the ballot:  
 

An ordinance repealing Ordinance No. 08-05-52 of the City of Frisco, Texas, which repealed Ordinance No. 07-08-37 which authorized the sale of alcoholic beverages by holders of a Mixed Beverage Late Hours Permit until 2:00 a.m. on any day.

               For the Ordinance                         

               Against the Ordinance                 

Una ordenanza que revoca la Ordenanza No. 08-05-52 de la Ciudad de Frisco, Texas, que revocó la Ordenanza No. 07-08-37 que autorizaba la venta de bebidas alcohólicas hasta las 2:00 a.m. en cualquier día a titulares de Permisos de Bebidas Mixtas en Horas Tardías.

                A favor de la Ordenanza           

    En contra de la Ordenanza       

 

HISTORY

State law permits the governing body of a municipality such as the City of Frisco to adopt an ordinance permitting the sale of mixed alcoholic beverages within the city from midnight to 2:00 a.m. on any day (“Extended Hours Sales”).  In the absence of such an ordinance, state law prohibits the sale of mixed alcoholic beverages past midnight except for Saturday night/Sunday morning, when mixed alcoholic beverages may be sold until 1 a.m. 

Pursuant to state law, the Frisco City Council adopted Ordinance No. 07-08-37 (“2007 Extended Hours Ordinance”) in August 2007 to allow the holder of a mixed beverage late hours permit to sell or offer to sell mixed beverages between midnight and 2:00 a.m. on any day, provided that the permit holder complied with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code.  After the City Council adopted the 2007 Extended Hours Ordinance, a petition for referendum was submitted by qualified voters to the City Secretary pursuant to Article 6.14 of the City Charter.  The petition sought to repeal the 2007 Extended Hours Ordinance.  On receipt of the petition, the City Council declined to repeal the 2007 Extended Hours Ordinance, and as required by the City Charter, ordered a special election to submit the issue to the voters.  Voters disapproved the 2007 Extended Hours Ordinance in the special election held on May 10, 2008.  In accordance with the election results, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 08-05-52 to repeal the 2007 Extended Hours Ordinance (“Ordinance No. 08-05-52”). 

Since the adoption of Ordinance No. 08-05-52, the City Council has considered Extended Hours Sales further.  Following a public hearing on August 18, 2014, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 14-08-84 for the purpose of ordering a special election to allow voters to decide whether to reject Ordinance No. 08-05-52.  The City Council called the special election under the authority of Section 6.15 of the City Charter, as required by Section 6.20 of the City Charter. 

Because Ordinance No. 08-05-52 was adopted based on a petition for referendum submitted by qualified voters under Section 6.14 of the City Charter, any amendment to or repeal of Ordinance No. 08-05-52 must be submitted to the voters under Section 6.20 of the City Charter.

 

Potential Outcome of Your Vote?

 

FOR THE ORDINANCE:  Ordinance No. 08-05-52 is repealed, meaning that the results of the May 2008 special election are set aside.  However, Extended Hours Sales will not take effect, if at all, unless the City Council decides to take further action.  Under state law, only the “governing body” of a municipality – in this case, the City Council – may adopt an ordinance authorizing Extended Hours Sales.  State law does not permit voters to adopt an ordinance authorizing Extended Hours Sales under a City Charter provision or otherwise.  Thus, a vote “For the Ordinance” will not, by itself, authorize Extended Hours Sales in the City of Frisco.  It only removes the current impediment to the City Council’s consideration of authorizing Extended Hours Sales.  If the majority of voters vote “For the Ordinance,” the City Council must hold another meeting and adopt an ordinance authorizing Extended Hours Sales under state law if it wishes to allow Extended Hours Sales.  The City Council, however, is not obligated to adopt an ordinance authorizing Extended Hours Sales if the majority of voters vote “For the Ordinance.”  Accordingly, the legal effect of a vote “For the Ordinance” is the repeal of Ordinance No. 08-05-52, clearing the way for the possibility of the subsequent adoption of an ordinance authorizing Extended Hours Sales by the City Council. 

 

AGAINST THE ORDINANCE:  Ordinance No. 08-05-52 remains in effect, and Extended Hours Sales will not apply in the City of Frisco unless (i) under current state law, the population of the City of Frisco, Collin County and/or Denton County is 800,000 or more as determined by the next federal census, as provided for in state law; or (ii) another special election to set aside Ordinance No. 08-05-52 is held under the authority of the City Charter, the measure is approved and the City Council subsequently adopts an ordinance authorizing Extended Hours Sales.
