Two new establishments were chosen as the recipients of retail liquor licenses by the Laramie City Council at their regular meeting on Tuesday night. The council voted 5-3 to award a license to Fox Hole Enterprises, LLC and 7-1 to award the second available license to The Crowbar and Grill, LLC.
Over the past few months we have been covering the City Council meetingsas they have been trying to figure out if they will issue the new liquor licences allotted to the city by the 2010 Census. The council's meeting a few weeks ago was particularilly interesting and frustrating for some people, especially those already established or new businesses who have been waiting to see whether or not they will receive one of the new licenses.
The Laramie City Council voted to postpone consideration of the new liquor license proposals until their regular meeting on Feb. 7th after the motion to offer two retail permits failed. Nine parties made pre-application proposals in November and this is the second time the city council has decided to postpone a decision about awarding the two new liquor licenses Laramie has to offer as a result of the 2010 census.
Two more retail liquor licenses are available to the City of Laramie and interested parties have started to make their case. Laramie received the licenses because of its increased population in the 2010 census. The city council could award the licenses to any of the eight parties who expressed interest during Tuesday’s work session.
