A. The license fee for any such retail liquor dealer shall be payable at the time application is made to the liquor control commissioner. The license shall expire on April 30 following the date of issuance. Said licenses shall be a purely personal privilege, good for not to exceed one year after issuance (except as otherwise provided in this chapter) and shall not constitute property, be subject to attachment, garnishment or execution, or alienable or transferable, as provided under "an act relating to alcoholic liquors", as amended. Failure to renew a liquor license and pay for such license during the first ten (10) days of the month in which such payment is due may be considered by the liquor control commissioner as an abandonment by such licensee of such license.
B. Retail licenses for the sale of alcoholic liquor shall be issued only by the village president as the liquor control commissioner, subject to the provision of an act entitled, "an act relating to alcoholic liquors", as amended, but not more than one class 1 license shall be issued within the village pursuant to this section and not more than one class 2 license shall be issued within the village pursuant to this section.
C. Retail liquor licenses shall be classified as follows:
1. Class 1 License: A class 1 license shall authorize the sale at retail and serving of alcoholic liquor for a golf club only for consumption on the premises of the sale, provided such sale and serving is secondary to the main purpose of operating a golf club on the premises. The annual fee for a class 1 license shall be five hundred dollars ($500.00).
2. Class 2 License: A class 2 license shall authorize the sale at retail and serving and/or the serving without charge of alcoholic liquor at special events as described below for consumption on the premises by a not for profit or religious corporation or association, which corporation or association shall have been organized for objects and purposes other than the sale and/or consumption of alcoholic liquor, and shall have been organized for at least two (2) years prior to the date of the application for a license.
A class 2 license shall authorize the retail sale and serving of, and/or serving without charge of, alcoholic liquor by such a qualifying organization as described above, for special events, such as and including, but not limited to, picnics, outings, festivals, dances, parties or at other similar special events for consumption on the premises specifically designated in such license but not more than twelve (12) such special events, each not to exceed a period of four (4) calendar days, shall be authorized by such a license in any calendar year. It shall be a condition precedent of such a class 2 license that the holder of such a license shall give the village president, as liquor control commissioner, ten (10) calendar days' prior written notice of each such special event to be held pursuant to the authority of such license (including a description of such special event in reasonable detail), and at that same time shall provide to the village a legible copy of the holder's then current certificate of dramshop insurance, covering the entire period of such special event. A class 2 license may be suspended or revoked by the liquor control commissioner for a failure by the holder to comply with said notice requirement and/or for a failure by the holder to keep in effect and provide a current certificate of dramshop insurance for each such special event.
The annual fee for a class 2 license shall be ten dollars ($10.00).
D. Notwithstanding anything contained in this chapter to the contrary, the serving without charge of alcoholic liquor shall not require any license pursuant to this chapter. (Ord. 04-773, 3-9-2004)
