Braintree Board Seeks Additional Licenses

The Weymouth News reports that the town of Braintree is planning to ask its mayor to seek special legislation creating at least one more liquor license for the town, but limiting any new licenses to business districts that the town is seeking to revitalize, including Braintree Square, South Braintree Square, and the Braintree portion of Weymouth Landing, which straddles the Braintree/Weymouth line.

Braintree has 35 full liquor licenses for bars, restaurants, and clubs, along with a few beer and wine licenses. Under state law, the number of liquor licenses each community is allowed is dictated by population.
