Please don’t forget to attend Monday’s Hearing on the City’s Petition to open rulemaking for extended hours of alcohol service:
Monday, March 12, 2012, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Seattle City Hall
Bertha Knight Landes Room
600 Fourth Avenue
Seattle, WA 98104
Mindful of the fact that this was scheduled during work hours, we made a request that another hearing take place in the community during evening hours. I received this response from the Liquor Board: “At this point we are scheduling just one hearing in the Seattle area.” (Note- This is at this point of the process, there may be additional hearings beyond this stage of the process if the petition is approved. EastPAC has received no other information or schedules as to future meetings)
Also from the Liquor Board:
“Prior to making a determination of whether to pursue rulemaking, the Board is interested in hearing from community members and leaders, communities surrounding Seattle, law enforcement at the local, county and state level, neighborhood and community groups and other interested parties.”
We hope our communities are well represented, and we encourage you to attend. For more background information on the City of Seattle’s petition, please see the LCB website: http://www.liq.wa.gov/rules/extended-hours-rule-making.
