AS 04.11.495. Removal of Local Option.

(a) If a majority of the persons voting on the question vote to remove the option, a municipality or established village shall remove a local option previously adopted under AS 04.11.491 . The option is repealed effective the first day of the month following certification of the results of the election.

(b) A ballot question to remove a local option under this section must at least contain language substantially similar to: "Shall (name of municipality or village) remove the local option currently in effect, that prohibits (current local option under AS 04.11.491 ), so that there is no longer any local option in effect? (yes or no)."

(c) When issuing a license in the area that has removed a local option, the board shall give priority to an applicant who was formerly licensed and whose license was not renewed because of the results of the previous local option election. However, an applicant described in this subsection does not have a legal right to a license and the board is not required to approve the application.
