Drinking Alcohol Could Cost More In Champaign

(no video)

Champaign-- Drinking alcohol in Champaign could cost more in the future.
That's if the Champaign City Council approves a liquor license increase.
The city council will talk about a proposed increase on Tuesday night.
It's all part of a five year plan to increase the city of Champaign's liquor license revenue by over 25 percent.
Last year, increased fees made the city nearly 40 thousand bucks.
They hope by 2014 to make over 100-thousand dollars more per year.
But some warn the increased costs to restaurants and bars could be passed on to customers.
