Applicants for on-sale retail liquor licenses shall file a written, verified application with all questions fully answered with the municipal clerk or county auditor. Forms shall be furnished by the municipal clerk or county auditor.
The retail licenses for sale of alcoholic beverages which the municipality may issue must contain a specific description of the premises to which the license applies. The description must state the numbered street address or the description of the lot, block, addition, or township. In addition, the license application must include a complete description of the compact and contiguous area in which the licensee will conduct business, including a description of physically connected attachments to the main structure such as patios, decks, or pavilions. If the description in this subpart covers a building with more than one story or rooms which are used for business purposes other than those permitted to be in combination with the license as outlined in part 7515.0420, then the description must specify the floor and the space to which the license will apply.
No license shall be granted for any premises with inside access to another business establishment unless the combination is permitted under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 340A.
The clerk shall read each application to ascertain that all questions have been answered and forms are completed before the application is submitted to the council.
Special note: No member of a municipal council, however, shall vote on any application for license for a spouse or any other relative.
After the application for license has been approved by the council, the clerk shall prepare the license certificate and deliver it to the licensee.
Within ten days after issuance of the on-sale liquor license, the clerk shall prepare and submit to the commissioner a form PS 9011 stating that a license has been issued. The form must show the full name and the address of the person or persons to whom the license is granted, the effective date and expiration date of the license, and all additional information required to complete the form which shall be furnished by the commissioner.
