Liquor Licensing


Because the holding of any type of liquor license grants legal privileges and rights as well as imposing considerable responsibilities, the proceedings governing the granting and revocation of such licenses can appear to be complex and not easily understood by citizens. This information is intended to assist citizens in participating more effectively in the liquor licensing process.

Please call or contact the Deputy City Clerk to schedule an appointment for submitting applications or to ask any questions that you may have.  You can also find more information on understanding the licensing process.
