Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 7/6/2005: Rick Lampton was present on behalf of the application. Mr. Lampton explained that LRB still owns 70 percent of the company, but they are adding himself as a new partner. He continued saying that LRB owns four stores and Range Restaurants only will be a partner in two of them, so they needed to make two separate companies to take care of that. To questioning from the commission, Mr. Lampton replied there will be no change in the operation of the business. There being no further discussion, Mr. Karki moved that THE APPLICATION OF RANGE RESTAURANTS, LLC (GRIZZLY’S GRILL & SALOON), 1722 MILLER TRUNK HWY., FOR TRANSFER OF THE ON SALE INTOXICATING LIQUOR AND SUNDAY LICENSE FOR THE PERIOD ENDING AUGUST 31, 2005, WITH LRB RESTAURANT CO., 75% STOCKHOLDER, (STEVE LETNES 70%, BARRY RINDAHL, 30%) AND BARRY RINDAHL, 5% STOCKHOLDER, RICK LAMPTON 20% STOCKHOLDER, TRANSFERRED FROM LRB RESTAURANT COMPANY (GRIZZLY’S GRILL & SALOON), SAME ADDRESS, BE APPROVED AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Anderson seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved.
