BY COUNCILOR KRAUSE:
BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council of the city of Duluth hereby approves the temporary expansion of the designated serving area of the following on sale intoxicating liquor licenses, subject to departmental approvals with any specific restrictions:
Fond Du Lac Management, Inc. (Fond Du Luth Casino), 129 East Superior Street, for September 27, 2006, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 9/6/2006: Jack Ripley was present on behalf of the application. Mr. Ripley explained that they are having a free concert on Superior Street in celebration of the casino’s 20th anniversary on September 27 and would like to serve alcohol out on the street. He continued saying that the stage will be in front of the casino and the beer sales will be down by the parking ramp. Mr. Ripley reviewed that the Greater Downtown Council is applying for the special events license which will allow Superior Street to be blocked off between First Avenue East and Second Avenue East. To questioning from the commission, Officer Latour replied that he has talked with the GDC, and they are aware what security will be needed for the event. The commission voiced concern that the applicant for the special event should appear at the meeting also since they are the responsible party for the security for the event. To questioning from the commission, Mr. Ripley replied that he anticipates the hours of the event will be from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. There being no further discussion, Mr. Karki moved that THE APPLICATION OF FOND DU LAC MGMT, INC. (FOND DU LUTH CASINO), 129 E. SUPERIOR ST, FOR TEMPORARY EXPANSION OF THEIR ON SALE INTOXICATING LIQUOR LICENSE FOR SEPTEMBER 27, 2006, BE APPROVED, AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Hanson seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved.
