QUINCY (CBS) – Quincy’s City Council is weighing a proposal to get rid of a decades-old policy that bans gas stations from selling food.

City Council President Michael McFarland introduced the revision to the ordinance that, according to The Patriot Ledger, has been in effect for 41 years.

Currently, the city’s gas stations are not allowed to sell coffee, soda, sandwiches, or other common food items unless they are in a vending machine.

If the change is approved, gas stations would need to get special permits if they wanted to sell food.
