Written evidence of the following: 1) that both the retail service area and restaurant area are leased pursuant to a single, valid lease (the "store lease"), the tenant under such store lease being referred to herein as the "store tenant"; 2) that the applicant holds a valid sublease of the restaurant area from the store tenant, and 3) that both the applicant and the store tenant satisfy the insurance requirements of subsection 4-1-15A of this chapter, and
c. Written policies or employee training manual provisions of both the applicant and the store tenant addressing the cleaning and operations of the retail service area in relation to alcoholic beverage service and consumption within the retail service area. Such policies or training manuals shall, in any event, require that applicant personnel regularly monitor the retail service area for used beverage containers and regularly retrieve any such containers.
2. The location of furniture within the restaurant area shall remain consistent during the term of the license, provided, however, the license holder may submit revised furniture diagrams for administrative review and approval by the Village Clerk, Village Fire Department and Village Building Inspections Supervisor.

b. Alert customers that exiting the restaurant area with any alcoholic beverages (other than to the retail service area) is prohibited; and
