Tighter Restrictions on Liquor License Transfers

In many cities, there is a set amount of liquor licenses and a business needs to buy and transfer one from an existing business in order to obtain one. In Oshtemo, MI, the process to transfer is about to get a bit more complex.

"Another change to the ordinance requires that any necessary remodeling or construction required for use of the license must begin within three months, rather than the previous six."

It's interesting how liquor licenses interact with so many other areas of a retail business. Everybody who's in the business of opening and closing new locations has to take this into consideration. You can't just look at liquor licenses in a vacuum.
