BY COUNCILOR STEWART:
BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council of the city of Duluth hereby issues the following on sale Sunday intoxicating liquor license for the period beginning September 1, 2005, and ending August 31, 2006, subject to departmental approvals:
Lake Aire Service Company Duluth, Inc. (Best Western Edgewater), 2330 London Road.
Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 8/3/2005: John Goldfine was present on behalf of the application. Mr. Goldfine explained that he is fulfilling the requirements of the Code by having a menu that the public can come in and order from along with alcohol in a dining area that will have seating for 80. Ms. Lutterman reviewed the State liquor code which requires the hotel to have a dining area that is open to the general public, has seating for 30, serves alcohol in conjunction with food, and if those requirements are met, a Sunday license is an allowable operation under the State Liquor Code. To questioning from the commission, Officer Latour stated he has not been out to the hotel to look at the area. The clerk stated that the resolution is contingent on police approval, so the commission can move forward on the recommendation. There being no further discussion, Mr. Karki moved THAT THE APPLICATION OF LAKE AIRE SERVICE COMPANY DULUTH INC. (BEST WESTERN EDGEWATER), 2330 LONDON ROAD, FOR AN ON SALE SUNDAY LICENSE FOR THE PERIOD BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 1, 2005, AND ENDING AUGUST 31, 2006, BE APPROVED, AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Anderson seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved.
