Liquor license cap not on tap

CAPE GIRARDEA, MO (KRCU) - Cape Girardeau city officials are looking at new ways to issue liquor licenses … but a mandatory cap is not on tap.

Currently, businesses must undergo a background check and maintain a neat and orderly facility.

But assistant city manager Heather Brook says that city council wants a more stringent process.

"The impression I have is most of the City Council seem to be a little hesitant to try to restrict the number or to have to much government interference," Brook said. "But they did seem to really want to look into a way of setting the bar a little bit higher for the impacts that some of these establishments could have on their neighbors and to do a little more research into that."

The topic was brought up at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.
