An Act authorizing the town of Hudson to grant additional licenses for the sale of all alcoholic beverages and wine and malt beverages to be drunk on the premises for Highland Commons.

 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              SECTION 1. (a) Notwithstanding section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Hudson may grant 4 additional Licenses for the sale of all alcoholic beverages and 1 license for the sale of wines and malt beverages to be drunk on the premises, pursuant to section 12 of said chapter 138, to persons operating premises located within the development known as Highland Commons, off of Coolidge street in the town of Hudson, as is more particularly shown on a plan entitled "Highland Commons Highway Shopping Center, Hudson/ Berlin, Mass. -Master Site Plan" dated November 21, 2013 on file with the town clerk. The licenses shall be subject to all of  said chapter 138, except said section 17.

              (b) The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of a license granted pursuant to this act to a location outside of Highland Commons, but it may grant the license to a new applicant within Highland Commons if the applicant files with the licensing authority a letter from the department of revenue, indicating that the license is in good standing with the department, and that all applicable taxes have been paid.

              (c) A license granted pursuant to this act shall not be transferrable to any other person, corporation or organization for a period of 3 years from the date of issuance or 3 years from the effective date of this act, whichever is later.  Any transfer in violation of this section shall render the license null and void.

              (d) If a license granted pursuant to this act is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use, the license shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority. The licensing authority may then grant that license to a new applicant who meets the criteria set forth in this act, and whose business is located within Highland Commons, subject to compliance with the rules and regulations of the board of selectmen, as licensing authority.

              SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
