Mission Statement

The Liquor Board Commission investigates and processes all alcoholic beverage license applications, investigates police reports pertaining to liquor law violations, all public complaints, and updates license information in the Alcohol Beverage License Book (PDF). If a violation of the State Alcoholic Beverage Laws or Local Rules and Regulations is found, the Board may have a hearing to consider a fine, suspension of the license or revocation of the license. All licensees shall operate their establishments in such a manner as to avoid disturbing the peace, tranquility, safety, health and quiet of the neighborhood.
