had filed a protest with the Texas Alcoholic

According to Quarles, she received a letter
from the TABC stating a variance had been
granted for the gas station across from South
A potential store owner had approached
the Daingerfield City Council asking for a
variance to the city’s distance requirements
in order to sell beer and wine at the location,
which falls inside the required distance from
schools. After the City Council approved the
variance, application was made for a license
to sell beer and wine for off-premise consumption
to TABC, who informed Quarles
in writing.
