Alcohol, gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 7/12/2007: Brian Stacken was present on behalf of the application. Mr. Stacken explained that they will be holding their Ducks Unlimited banquet at Spirit Mountain in September and they need to get a waiver of the 60 day waiting period as they filed their application late with the state gambling control board. To the commission’s questioning, Mr. Stacken replied that this is their annual membership banquet and the raffles will be held during the banquet. Officer Vang stated he has approved this application. There being no further discussion, Mr. Hanson moved that THE 60 DAY WAIVER FOR RAFFLE EXEMPTION FOR DUCKS UNLIMITED BE APPROVED AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Serre seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved.
