Master Plan Goals

Beer-Wine License

 

McGuire reported that discussions were underway with the Liquor Control Commission and were not yet completed.  He reported that currently the emphasis was being placed on an option by which a vendor, not the City would hold the license.  The license would be a


resort license which would stay with the resort rather than the license holder.  Discussions are ongoing and a report will be submitted when they are completed.  Lengerman asked that the Currie Family be approached for their opinion on the subject.
