Formation of Task Force to Review Alcohol License Permitting and Enforcement Process

Posted by adnanews | Licensing | Thursday, July 15, 2010 12:04 pm

The Atlanta City Council’s Public Safety and Legal Administration Committee to announce work session to discuss the formation of a task force to review the liquor license permitting and enforcement process

ATLANTA – At its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, July 13, the Atlanta City Council’s Public Safety Committee and Legal Administration Committee will announce an upcoming work session to discuss the formation of a task force to review the liquor license permitting and enforcement process as recommended in Council Resolution 10-R-1343.

Resolution 10-R-1343 would establish a community and industry working group to review the alcoholic beverage licensing process between the time an extended hours liquor serving permit application is submitted by an establishment to the city and the time it is considered by the License Review Board for approval or disapproval.

The Public Safety Committee meets at 3 p.m. in Committee Room No. 2, Atlanta City Hall, Second Floor, 55 Trinity Avenue, SW.

However no action will be taken at the Tuesday, July 13, 2010 meeting on 10-O-1342, which proposes a pilot program in the Auburn and Edgewood Avenue Districts to extend pouring hours to 4 am.

City Councilmembers Kwanza Hall and Michael Julian Bond on July 6 introduced legislation that would allow the city to establish an Extended Hours Permit Pilot Program on Auburn and Edgewood Avenues to examine the benefits and risks of extending the permissible hours for sales of alcohol for on-premise consumption in the city.

Hall and Bond also introduced a resolution calling for a comprehensive review of the current process by which businesses obtain licenses to sell and serve alcohol and the city’s ability to close businesses with liquor licenses that repeatedly violate city code and attract crime and criminality to a community.

Currently establishments with pouring licenses can only operate Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. of one day and 2:30 a.m. of the following day and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, under city law.

The new legislation would allow establishments within the pilot program’s boundaries to extend the hours within which alcohol may be sold for on-premise consumption to Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 3:55 a.m. of the following day and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 2:55 a.m. on Sunday.

If the legislation is approved, a qualified establishment must meet the following requirements:

(1)        Possess a valid annual license for the sale of alcohol for on-premises consumption of distilled spirits, wine and malt beverages; and

(2)        Be located within the boundaries of the Edgewood Avenue/Auburn Avenue Pilot District. (Auburn: Piedmont Avenue to the Downtown Connector; Edgewood: Piedmont Avenue to Daniel Street.); and

(3)        Possess an extended hours permit issued by the City of Atlanta Police Department.

For more information contact the Atlanta City Council Public Safety and Legal Administration Committee Chairman Ivory Lee Young, Jr. at 404-330-6046.
