Financial Impact



Chapter 4 of the Hernando County Code of Ordinances regulates the location of, and requires a permit for Bottle Clubs.  The permitting of Bottle Clubs is pre-empted to the State; however, the location of Bottle Clubs can be regulated by the local jurisdiction consistent with the adopted zoning regulations for establishments that sell alcohol.  The proposed ordinance repeals the requirements contained in Chapter 4, and includes Bottle Clubs in Appendix A (Zoning) relative to the zoning requirements for establishments that dispense alcohol (bars, taverns, etc.).


The proposed updated regulations constitute a Land Development Regulation; and as such, Florida Statutes require the Board to hold two (2) public hearings with at least one (1) hearing conducted after 5:00 p.m. on a weekday, unless the Board votes by a majority plus one (1) to have the hearing at another time of day.  Therefore, the Board will have to authorize staff to advertise public hearings for consideration of the ordinance at regularly scheduled meetings during normal business hours.
