Department of Commerce and Investment (DCI) Senior Trade Officer
Gavin Dixon noted that business owners will still need to curtail
liquor sales at their premises towards the end of the operating
hours, as per Section 11(8) of The Liquor Licensing Law (2000
'Licence holders need to remember that they still have to
comply with the law and cease all liquor sales during the last ten
minutes of their permitted hours. Standard liquor licensing and
safety conditions will also apply', said Mr Dixon, who also is
the Board's Acting Secretary.
Mr Dixon added that bar and nightclub owners, as well as other
liquor licence holders, are reminded to apply for licence renewals
early to avoid processing delays. The renewal deadline is Friday,
19 August 2016.
Prior to this deadline, licensees must have their premises
inspected by relevant Government agencies. Depending on
licensees' particular operations, these inspections may include
the Fire Service, Environmental Health, Planning Department, and
Port Authority. Reports from these agencies should be submitted to
the Liquor Licensing Board along with renewal applications.
Renewal applications are available from the Business Licensing
Counter on the first floor of the Government Administration
Building, and on DCI's website, www.dci.gov.ky.
