The Vandalia City Council will likely further address the issue of potentially allowing alcohol to be served by restaurant employees under the age of 21. The City of Vandalia currently requires a server, or waiter or waitress, to be 21 years old in order to serve alcohol in a restaurant or bar. But, most area communities—including Effingham, Greenville, Salem, and Pana—-set their requirement at 18 years old. Two restaurants—The Gallatin Street Grille and The Copper Penny—have made the request to allow 18 year olds to serve in Vandalia. The City Council debated the issue for a while at Monday night’s meeting, with their biggest hangups being what time they would cut off allowing 18 year olds to serve—with one idea being 9 pm but others feeling you could go a bit later. And, the other issue that came up was the definition of a restaurant. City Attorney Ryan Conner said that he would take a look at other community’s ordinances on the issue to see how they handled the situation. It would seem likely the issue may be discussed at the City Council’s first meeting in July.
