Applicants must complete the Liquor License application
as well as the Background Check application
and submit both to the City Clerk’s Office along with all background check fees to begin the liquor license process. The owners and liquor managers of the business are required to take part in a background check. This is an extensive background check and can take up to three months to complete. There is a non-refundable fee of $600 / person for the background check.
Along with the aforementioned applications, interested parties must submit a letter to the City Manager and request that an additional liquor license be added to the Municipal Code in the classification category which best suits their business, as well as submit their business and floor plans for review.
