Hillside Business Association CW Chips May 14, 2001


Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 5/17/2001: Burke Edgerton was present on behalf of this application. To the commission's questions, Mr. Edgerton stated that he currently is the gambling manager of the Epilepsy League, but that this organization is closing their pulltab operations at the end of July when their premises permit expires. He continued by saying that the Hillside Business Association approached him about doing pulltabs for them and apply for the same premises which Epilepsy is currently now in. The commission questioned about the storage facility, and Mr. Edgerton replied that it is a building that the Hillside Business Association uses and is a safe and secure building. The clerk stated that Officer Christensen has approved this application. There being no further questions, Mr. Willman moved that the PREMISE PERMIT APPLICATION FOR THE HILLSIDE BUSINESS ASSOCIATION FOR CW CHIPS BE APPROVED, AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Carlson seconded the motion, and it was unanimously approved.
