Temporary Liquor Permits
*As we navigate through the COVID-19 health emergency, DCP Liquor Control will be reviewing temporary liquor permit applications on a case-by-case basis for compliance with: active Executive Orders from Governor Lamont, Reopening Guidelines and Sector Rules as established by the Department of Economic and Community Development (“DECD”) . Your permit will not be approved if the proposed event does not comport to these standards.
As part of the permit application process, please submit a written and detailed operations plan for your proposed event. The plan must meet the standards set forth by the Governor’s Executive Orders and DECD guidelines for events, and should describe how you plan to enforce those standards during the event.
Please know that restrictions are in place that: (1) limit the number of persons, including staff, in attendance at the event; (2) specify that alcoholic beverages must be served with food; (3) require social distancing; and (4) specify the type of entertainment allowed. Other restrictions may also be relevant to your event.
Once we receive your detailed plan and proposal, we may need to review it with DECD to ensure all standards are met, so please plan to submit your completed temporary liquor permit application in a timely manner.
