Before you start
Liquor licenses are regulated by the City's liquor ordinance. Before you sell any type of alcohol or liquor, you need both a city license and a state license. Prior to filling-out or submitting a liquor license application, you must make an appointment for an interview with the Local Liquor Control Commission. Contact Deputy Liquor Control Commissioner Jane Kemper (contact information below) for an appointment. You can review the application forms, which are listed below. Please allow at least 30 days for processing of an application.
The review process
After you've submitted the appropriate license application and payment, the application will be reviewed by the Mayor/Liquor Control Commissioner. If the application is approved by the Liquor Control Commissioner, it will be referred to the City Council for consideration.
Your license must receive approval by the City Council. If it is approved, your liquor license will be available from the Deputy Liquor Control Commissioner, Jane Kemper. Your license is valid for one year.
