Branded Barrel Alcohol License
The City alcohol license is subject to the State license so that the Branded Barrel can start selling at their package store. The owners were working diligently to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy and State approval, however, they have been subject to a Temporary Restraining Order due to certain deed restrictions and as a result not been able to continue work. In order to avoid automatic forfeiture and in accordance with Section 6-68 (c), they have requested an extension due to the extraordinary circumstances of the TRO.
Below are the provisions of the ABO regarding nonuse:
Section 6-68. Forfeiture for nonuse.
(a) All holders of licenses hereunder must, within three months after the issuance of the license, open for business the establishment referred to in the license. Failure to open the licensed establishment within three months after the issuance of the license shall serve as the automatic forfeiture and cancellation of the license, and no refund of license fee shall be made to the license holder.
(b) Any holder of a license hereunder who shall begin the operation of the business authorized in the license, but who shall for a period of three months thereafter cease to operate the business as authorized in the license, shall, upon expiration of such three-month period, automatically forfeit the license; and the license shall, by virtue of such failure to operate, be canceled without the necessity of any further action of the mayor and council, and no refund of license fee shall be made to the license holder.
(c) Extensions of the time period may be granted by the mayor and council under extraordinary circumstances.
