SEAGRAVES - The City of Seagraves got a pleasant surprise on Wednesday.

It turns out that the businesses there have legally been able to serve and sell alcohol inside city limits since 1938.

Seagraves officials did have an ordinance put into place to control the sale of alcohol.

That was revised two years later.

It has been determined that these ordinances are dated and don't have the right vocabulary to regulate alcohol within the city correctly.
