The Liquor Control Board is holding public hearings regarding a petition to open rulemaking for extended hours of alcohol service. This petition, submitted by the City of Seattle, proposes that individual cities would have the ability to seek an exemption from the 2:00 a.m. deadline for alcohol sales at on-premises locations. Cities would be able to set their own hours, including allowing alcohol sales around-the-clock.
Prior to making a determination of whether to pursue rulemaking, the Board is interested in hearing from community members and leaders across the state, law enforcement at the local, county and state level, neighborhood and community groups and other interested parties. For more background information on this petition for extended hours, please see the LCB website:
