Beer Sales Clarified
|The special session
of the City Commission made a slight adjustment to the location as the
VFW Ladies Auxilary meeting ran late and the normal meeting room (just
beyond the doors in the back of this photo) was unavailable. A few chairs
were rounded up and the meeting was held in the hallway. Several Collinsville
merchants interested in beer sales at Hogs 'N' Hot Rods were present for
the discussion Monday.
Beer sales controversy for Hogs 'N' Hot Rods prompted another rare
location change (to the CHS gym) for the city
meet in April 2003.
NOTICE OF THE MEETING OF THE
COLLINSVILLE CITY COMMISSION
TYPE OF MEETING: Special
DATE: May 23, 2011
TIME: 7:30 p.m.
PLACE: Commission Chambers, Collinsville City Hall
106 N. 12th Street
Notice and agenda filed
in the office of the City Clerk and posted at City Hall at 4:30 a.m. on Thursday,
May 19, 2011.
Angela McGinnis, City Clerk
1. Call to Order
2. Flag Salute
3. Roll Call: Mayor Stan Sallee was absent. Pam Porter
presided and could only have voted to break a tie. Commissioners Dee Sink
and Bud York voted yes (enough for approval) on item 4 below and Commissioner
Sherri Davis abstained.
4. Discussion, consideration and possible action on the permitting, sale and
consumption of beer at the annual Hogs N Hot Rods Event. -- approved
after a lengthy discussion and clarification of goals by Collinsville Downtown
Inc. (CDI), city commissioners, city attorney and representatives for at least
two of the 4 local merchants with existing licenses to sell 3.2 beer. There
had been some confusion with CDI deciding not to sell beer this year (&
recent resignation of the CDI program manager, Susan Euler) but wanting to
still control how many vendors / where beer sales would occur in the Hogs'
event area.. There are currently 4 local businesses with existing (interior
only) beer sales permits: Grey Beards, Silver Dollar Cafe, Jalapeno Grill
and Philly's Cheese Steak Company.
Philly's had already purchased a special 1-day event beer sales permit for
Hogs 'N' Hot Rods. The city approval (& CDI/merchant goal) does not allow
vendors from out-of-town (or non-profits) to be eligible for the local beer
event sales on that day. One of the stated goals is to sell food with a greater
potential for return customers (after the event) more likely than beer sales.
Other than CDI not being directly involved in beer sales and having new licensed
merchants, there is no significant change anticipated ... from the past 10
years with no negative incidents reported.
5. Discussion, consideration
and possible action on permit for Hogs N Hot Rods Special Event. --
n/a ... covered by item 4 above.
