Bars allowed to reopen Monday

Bars in Victoria County will be allowed to reopen Monday after the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission approved a request from County Judge Ben Zeller.

After nearly two months, Victoria County bars could reopen as of Monday after the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission approved a request from County Judge Ben Zeller.

“The winter storm we just encountered was another big hit on our community — on top of the continuing burden that COVID-19 has placed on our small businesses,” Zeller said in a news release. “I’m glad to take this step forward today, see more of our local businesses re-open, and get things closer to normal.”

Bar’s should not have been closed in the first place. They could have operated under the same rules as restaurants...
