City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 08/02/2017  
Subject:    Consider Adoption of Ordinance 2193 Amending Class B Off-Sale Liquor Regulations
From: Joan Lenzmeier, City Clerk

Council is asked to Adopt Ordinance 2193 amending Class B Off-Sale liquor regulations.
The City Council discussed potential changes to Class B liquor licensing at work sessions on May 9 and July 5, 2017 and a proposed ordinance was developed based on those discussions.  This ordinance was then introduced at the July 18, 2017 City Council meeting.  At that time, there was some discussion about further narrowing the scope of the potential Class B users to those with "grocery" versus the current language which only states "retail." As this was only an introduction, no formal direction was given at the July 18 meeting and the ordinance presented for adoption tonight is in the same form as was introduced. The City Council may choose to modify the language of the proposed ordinance at the August 2 meeting; however, it should be noted that significant changes to the language will require a re-introduction of the ordinance.

The proposed ordinance would amend the definition of Class B to allow the sale of intoxicating liquor and reduce the square feet of floor area as a principal use required to 25,000 square feet, as well as eliminate the restriction as to the number of licenses allowed and the proximity limits.

The ordinance is attached for review.
Consider adoption of Ordinance 2193 amending Class B Off-Sale liquor regulations.
