EDGEWOOD, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill that allows smaller restaurants affordable liquor license options for the Edgewood Central District.
HB 1423 permits smaller restaurants to buy an SRX license for $5,000 instead of a 4COP. A 4COP can cost as much as $300,000.
The new law designates a special zone in the city’s Central District, where restaurants and shopping are located on Orange, Hoffner and Gatlin Avenues.
The city said this specific alcoholic beverage license will benefit Edgewood’s small budget and the recently created downtown area.
Mayor John Dowless said this bill will help create new jobs.
