Local Alcoholic Beverage Board Hearings
Detailed information regarding the local board process is available in the 2018 Local Board Handbook. New or existing local board members who have not previously received or documented their required training must review this LB Training Document within 180 days of their appointment. Once the board member has reviewed the training materials, they must submit a Training Completion Form to the board's designated member, typically an Excise officer assigned to their board.
A schedule of the Local Alcoholic Beverage Board Hearing meeting dates and locations can be found by clicking on the links below. Updated schedules of dates, times and participants are refreshed regularly and include the current month and the following month.
This local board schedule only lists those applications that have been recently advertised for a hearing or had their hearing continued prior to the run date of the schedule. There may be other applications scheduled to be heard that were continued from previous hearings, but were continued after creation of the schedule.
