Council approves three liquor licenses

The Rosemount City Council had a busy night Tuesday. The agenda included three public hearings for liquor license applications and the approval of a conditional use permit.

The council received few comments about any of the applications and approved liquor licenses for Applebee's Grill and Bar, Café Raisa and Irish Liquors.

Applebee's received an on-sale Class B liquor license. The restaurant has a new owner, which necessitated the new license.

Café Raisa received an on-sale wine and strong beer liquor license. The restaurant, which opened early this summer, will serve wine and beer.

Last but not least FPW, LLC received an off-sale license with the conditions that the business supply a copy of its lease and a certificate of occupancy is approved. The company will do business as Irish Liquor and will be located in the former Big Daddy's location in the Loch-Blake building.

FPW formerly held a license to operate MGM Liquors. The license FPW currently holds for MGM Liquors will be relinquished upon the issuance of the new license, according to the staff memo. Additionally, the MGM located in Rosemount Crossing will close.

Other business

In other business the city council granted Cedarwood Church a conditional use permit. The church, which purchased the Lenny's Landscaping site on Highway 3, will operate the church on the site.

Getting to this point has been a long process for the church and council member Kim Shoe-Corrigan thanked pastor Mike Berg for his patience going through the process and welcomed the congregation to town.
