AN ACT GRANTING 4 ADDITIONAL LIQUOR LICENSES FOR THE SALE OF WINES AND MALT BEVERAGES TO BE DRUNK ON THE PREMISES IN CONCORD.

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 Concord may grant 4 additional licenses for the sale of wine and malt beverages to be drunk on the premises pursuant to section 12 of said chapter 138 as follows: (i) 1 license to Emerson Umbrella Inc., located at 40 Stow street in the town of Concord; (ii) 1 license to Saltbox Farm Concord, LLC, located at 40 Westford road in the town of Concord; (iii) 1 license to Verrill Farm LLC, located at 11 Wheeler road in the town of Concord and; (iv) 1 license to 51 Walden, Inc., located at 51 Walden street in the town of Concord.  The licenses shall be subject to all of chapter 138, except section 17.

(b)  A license granted under this act shall only be exercised in the dining room of a common victualler and such other public rooms or areas as may be deemed reasonable and appropriate by the licensing authority of the town of Concord as certified in writing.

(c)  The licensing authority of the town of Concord shall not approve the transfer of a license granted under this act to any other location but it may grant a license to a new applicant at the same location if the applicant files with the licensing authority a letter from the department of revenue and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the applicant is in good standing with those departments and that all applicable taxes, fees and contributions have been paid.

(d)  If a licensee terminates or fails to renew a license granted under this act, or any such license 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 of the town of Concord, which may then grant the license to a new applicant under the same conditions as specified in this act.

(e)  All licenses granted under this act shall be issued within 2 years after the effective date of this act; provided, however, that a license originally granted within that time period may be granted to a new applicant under subsections (c) or (d) thereafter.

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