- The institution must obtain a permit for each related facility where alcohol beverages will be served.
- Each related facility must remain at all times under the ownership or control of the licensee.
- The institution must designate a manager for the campus liquor complex and for each related facility.
- For the purposes of license discipline, each related facility is deemed separately permitted.
Section 5 imposes a state permit fee of $75 and section 6 imposes a local permit fee of $100.
$22,150 is appropriated from the liquor enforcement division and state licensing authority cash fund for use by the liquor and tobacco enforcement division.
