Temporary liquor license problem close to solution

One of the hottest topics discussed at the July 6 County Commission meeting were two pending temporary liquor licenses. The commission expressed some concern as to allow the catering of these services from businesses located outside the county. Their chief concern was extensive catering might harm some of the small business in the community. Commissioners also expressed understanding however, that individuals had a right to choose whom they give their business. The conversation then turned to compromises.
“We are going to set a precedence for what’s going on here. If we give one we have to give the other,” Commissioner Kent Albers said.
