The City of White Oak allows for the legal sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption only. There is a 200 feet distance provision for churches, schools, and public hospitals for the sale of alcoholic beverages.
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission issues state permits for alcohol sales, including temporary permits. The TABC application must be certified by the city secretary and county clerk prior to submission. The TABC pre-qualification packets and additional information for obtaining state licenses are available on the TABC website
Additionally the City collects local fees which are the equivalent of one-half of the state fees required for alcoholic beverage sales licenses; for the City of White Oak, one-half of the state fee for off-premise consumption only is $30. Fees are collected at the time the permit application is certified by the city secretary and at the time the permit is renewed. There is also a one-time $150 city permit application fee also due at the time the permit application is certified by the city secretary.
There are certain circumstances that a Specific Use Permit may be required. Please see the zoning ordinance below for information.
