1. Liquor License Classification - Salons – The Board and Staff discussed the possibility
of allowing liquor licenses to salons which would allow a salon to offer, for purchase, a glass of wine to a customer who is receiving a service such as a manicure/pedicure. There are businesses in some of the surrounding communities that offer this currently. Village Administrator Steve Bosco said he would looking into Batavia’s rules since they are one of the communities that offer this service.
Trustee Curtis said this would be a great idea and was in favor of allowing this for North Aurora.
Atty. Drendel said that the village has control over who can have a liquor license. The conversation is then, what are the limits/parameters of that license. The approach in Batavia is to create one for a specific interest and if there is more interest, will consider those.
Trustee Carroll said that he could see tattoo parlors, massage parlors and other businesses offering personal services being included.
Motion made by Trustee Guethle and seconded by Trustee Lowery to adjourn to executive session for the purpose of discussing Executive Session Minutes. All in favor. Motion approved.
