Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 8/8/00:  Lisa Hanson was present on behalf of the application. Ms. Hanson reviewed that they are currently operating pulltabs in Shotz Bar, and that they are pulling out of the Limit Bar and moving into Stadium Lanes. To the board's questioning, Ms. Hanson stated that their organization involves young people by putting on plays teaching other students about drugs and alcohol. The clerk stated that Officer Christensen has no problems with this organization in the past and has approved this application. There being no further discussion, Mr. McKinnon moved that THE PREMISE PERMIT APPLICATION OF CLIMB THEATER FOR STADIUM LANES BE APPROVED, AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Carlson seconded the motion, and it was unanimously approved.
