Once a liquor license is available it will be posted in the local paper, as well as on the License Commission's webpage. Anyone interested in applying for an available license would first submit a letter of interest to the License Commission before the deadline date. The interested party will be called in for an information hearing. If the License Commission is agreeable to the proposal, the applicant will need to submit the following information.
