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. Notwithstanding sections 11 and 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Milton may grant an additional license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises to a restaurant located at 2 Adams Street, owned by Extra Space of Milton, LLC or its successor in interest; provided, however, that a successor in interest shall be subject to approval by the board of selectmen of said town and the alcoholic beverages control commission. An application to transfer the license to a successor in interest shall be granted and approved according to the standard for a new license, and all the procedures set forth in section 15A of chapter 138 shall be applicable thereto. Notwithstanding sections 64A, 64B and 67 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensee shall provide to the licensing authority of the town of Milton a certificate of insurance for liquor liability providing security for the liability of the licensee to a limit of not less than $500,000 to any one person and $1,000,000 to all persons. The limits may be increased at the discretion of the licensing authority. The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138, except said section 17. The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of the license to any other location.
The license may be re-issued by the licensing authority at the same location if an applicant for the licensed 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. If the license granted under this act is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use, it shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto to the licensing authority and the licensing authority may then grant the license to a new applicant at the same location and under the same conditions as specified in this act.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage; provided, however, that if the license authorized in section 1 is not issued within 4 years after the effective date of this act, no license shall be granted under this act.
