Amendment stipulates businesses must be open continually

By Kellen Olshefski


At its April 2 meeting, the City of Elkhorn Common Council voted in favor of amending the city code of ordinances related to alcoholic beverages to more clearly define the period a business is required to be open to receive a license.

Alderman Cathy Bensaid said the Legislative and Regulatory Committee discussed the topic at its March 22 meeting, noting concerns had been raised in the past over businesses applying for a liquor license that are open for business even if they’re only open on a limited basis.

“We wanted to tighten up that ordinance and be a little more helpful in describing what being open for business means,” she said.

The specific ordinance Bensaid was referring to is Chapter 12.03(9)(k), which falls under the city’s chapter on Alcohol Beverages and is title Required Period Open for Business.
