AN ACT GRANTING AN ADDITIONAL LICENSE FOR THE SALE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES IN THE TOWN OF MILTON

     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 of the restaurant located at 554-558B Adams street in the town of Milton, which is owned by Franklin Realty, LLC or any successors in interest; provided, however, that any successor in interest shall be subject to approval by the Milton board of selectmen 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 said chapter 138 shall be applicable thereto. 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 reissued by the licensing authority at the same location if an applicant for the license files with the licensing authority a letter from the department of revenue and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those departments and that all applicable taxes, fees and contributions 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 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 3 years after the effective date of this act, no license shall be granted.
