As soon as alcohol sales were passed in parts of Leon county, a group of Normangee parents started working to put more controls in place. Now their work has paid off.
The parents successfully convinced school board and county leaders to extend the distance from schools where alcohol can be sold from 300 feet up to one thousand feet.
Leon County Commissioners approved the change after receiving a formal request from the Normangee school board.
Residents of precinct four in Leon County voted in November to change that portion of the county from dry to wet.
But many parents expressed concern that having alcohol only 300 feet from the schools wouldn't be wise, and rallied their local leaders to make the change.
