MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Midland's Chuck E. Cheese's is one step closer to serving alcohol at the restaurant.

At Tuesday's city council meeting, members approved the item but it has to be approved one more time before the permit can go into effect.

If approved, Chuck E. Cheese's will begin serving alcohol come late August.

The restaurant's general manager said corporate enforces strict policies when it comes to serving alcohol.

"It is a two drink minimum. One ID, one drink, everyone gets carded. You cannot come in and order yourself and someone else a drink. You have to have your ID and they have to have theirs. We track who got it when, who served it," said Christi Owens, General Manager with Midland Chuck E. Cheese's.

If the measure passes, all employees will be Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) certified.

The Midland City Council will meet again on August 9 to have a second vote on the item.
