BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Alcoholic Beverage Control Board plans a community meeting Monday in Bethel to discuss proposed alcohol sales.

Bethel radio station KYUK (https://is.gd/2SneHQ) reports ABC director Cynthia Franklin will discuss the licensing process and how community input is taken. Members of the board are not expected to be present.

Two businesses are expected to apply for liquor licenses, including one for a store planned by a Bethel Native Corp. subsidiary in part of a new supermarket that just went out of business.

Also seeking to sell alcohol is the Alaska Commercial Co., which wants to open the store within its current grocery store.

In 2009, voters in Bethel eliminated a local option law that limited imports of alcohol. The following year, local voters rejected five types of liquor licenses.
