1. All licensees shall have in effect, prior to the issuance of any liquor license hereunder, general liability insurance with limits of not less than one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) combined single limit or one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) per occurrence and per aggregate, naming the Village of Oak Brook as a party insured, and shall submit to the Village a certificate or policy of insurance as evidence of such coverage, issued by an insurance company licensed to do business in the State and have a "Best" rating acceptable to the Village.
