BY COUNCILOR KRAUSE:
BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council of the city of Duluth hereby approves of the permanent expansion of the designated serving area of the following on sale intoxicating liquor license for the period ending August 31, 2006, subject to departmental approvals, with any specific restrictions:
Va Bene Café, Inc. (Va Bene Caffe), 734 East Superior Street.
Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 8/2/2006: Josh Stotts was present on behalf of the application. Mr. Stotts explained that they are adding a deck on to the back of their restaurant which should be finished in about two weeks. He continued saying that the only way onto the deck is through the building, although there is an emergency exit off the deck that is required by fire code. To questioning from the commission, Mr. Stotts reviewed that they had also been before the board in June to allow their premises to expand to put tables and chairs in front of the building and that has been working very well. Officer Latour stated he has approved this application. There being no further discussion, Mr. Hanson moved that THE APPLICATION OF VA BENE CAFÉ, INC. (VA BENE CAFFE), 734 EAST SUPERIOR STREET, FOR PERMANENT EXPANSION OF THE DESIGNATED SERVING AREA FOR THE PERIOD ENDING AUGUST 31, 2006, BE APPROVED, AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Hanson seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved.
