State Law: City Electeds Can Not Sell to Businesses With Liquor Licences

It's been months since Norm Barber resigned from the Stevens Point city council, citing an "archaic law" that prohibits city aldermen from selling materials to businesses that hold liquor licenses.
Barber, who owns Barber's Sewing Machine & Vacuum Cleaner Shoppe, 2400 Church St., has said he sells vacuums to around 90 percent of the taverns in Portage County. According to state statute 125.51 (1b), "No member of the municipal governing body may sell or offer to sell to any person holding or applying for a license any bond, material, product or thing that may be used by the licensee in carrying on the business subject to licensure."
