Liquor Certificate of Compliance Applications are $250. We only accept cash or check.
To apply for a Certificate of Compliance, you will need a copy of your lease agreement, social security number, driver’s license, sketch of your location (showing the street, adjourning property owners, and nearest church), and square footage of your building.
Once the application is completed and turned in, it will get sent over to the Police Department. Once we receive the paperwork back, we can add the applicant to the next City Council Agenda. Once the council approves and signs the Certificate of Compliance, it can be issued to the applicant the following day.
After you apply with ABC and receive your Liquor License, you will need to pay the Liquor By the Drink Tax. The Fees are provided by the state and are listed below.
