The Sterling City Council held a lengthy debate in their previous meeting in regards to businesses needing more time to pay their required liquor license fee. The final ordinance came before the council during Monday’s City Council meeting for approval. This time there was very little discussion.
It was determined businesses who have not paid their liquor license fee now have until December 31st. It was pointed out that the April 2021 date was still in effect.
According to the city, there are currently 5 businesses that have not paid their required payment. Of those five, four have turned in or completed their paper work for the extension and one has not. Mayor Skip Lee said they will be getting in contact with those businesses soon.
This is the second extension given to businesses. The original due date was May, but, with the closures caused by the pandemic, the first extension was established to July 31st.
