Almost 60 apply for 14 available AR liquor permits

LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - State regulators are evaluating 57 applications for 14 available liquor licenses in Boone and Clark counties.

Voters approved liquor sales in the two counties in November and May 30 was the deadline for businesses to apply for licenses.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that 28 applications were filed for nine available licenses in Boone County, and 29 applications came in for five licenses available in Clark County.

The number of licenses available in a county is based on population.

To obtain a permit, the Alcoholic Beverage Control agency has to certify the information on the application is correct, and agents scout proposed business locations to ensure they are not near churches or schools and to check that neighbors know about the application.
