Liquor license rules tweaked, new auto sticker schedule rolled out at Council meeting

Rules for how businesses obtain liquor licenses and how neighbors can contest those applications would be tweaked under amendments approved Wednesday by the City Council Committee on License and Consumer Protection.

The committee unanimously approved changes to the city code regarding rules for Place of Public Amusement licenses — which allow for uses such as movie theaters, nightclubs and bowling alleys — and liquor licenses that would shorten turnaround time for approvals while making it easier for neighbors to contest applications for new businesses.
