General Licensing Process

  1. The licensing process begins with  the towns Liquor Licensing Commission that reviews and approves/rejects the license request.
  2. The local licensing authority sends the application to the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (ABCC) for approval.
  3. Only after approval from the ABCC is the license issued by the local licensing authority. The license fee is determined by, and paid to, the local licensing authority at the time the licensee receives the license.
