Approval of a liquor license for the newly-reopened CB's Tavern proved to be the most straightforward action Delta City Council took on Tuesday, Jan. 22. The lengthy meeting was marked by three public hearings on liquor licenses.
After lengthy hearings on Oct. 2, the Delta City Council granted 3.2 off premises beer licenses to the two Alta convenience stores in Delta and held off on a final decision on a third application from Stinker's.
Separate hearings were held for the Alta stores at 1430 Highway 50 and 1520 Howard Street.
A number of restaurants and retail liquor stores in Delta were issued violations after selling alcohol to an underage enforcement officer in November.
Devil's Thumb Golf Club, Daveto's, CB's Tavern, Uptown Wines and Green Valley Liquor were cited in the sting.
Hotchkiss trustees voted at the Jan. 14 council meeting to approve two liquor license renewal applications.
The license for Pat's Bar & Grill, 140 N. Bridge Street, was recently suspended by the state liquor licensing board for two incidences of serving after hours.
An ordinance is being drafted that would allow the Delta city clerk to handle most liquor license renewals, transfers of ownership and special event liquor requests without city council approval. As long as the applicant has had no liquor violations, and has the endorsement of the Delta Police Department, those routine matters will no longer require a hearing before city council.
