Multiple issues were covered at the Madison City Council Tuesday night, including liquor licenses for a neighborhood grocery store and a new fast food restaurant.

Taco Bell has formally requested to open a location on State Street that would sell margaritas and beer. It would be located at the same site of the old Wendy’s

The issue was referred to the Alcohol Licensing Review Committee, but Mayor Paul Soglin says it shouldn’t be allowed.

“I’m solidly against it,” Soglin said. “I think it’s a matter of policy, unless some place is a full service restaurant with a wait staff and a properly managed bar, there should not be a liquor license.”

Meanwhile, the council approved the liquor license for the Willy Street Co-op tonight. It hopes to sell a small selection of beer and wine to boost overall sales.
