Quota Retail by the Drink Change
As of June 7, 2018, quota retail drink licenses are now treated the same as all other alcohol licenses that cities may issue due to the regulatory repeal of 804 KAR 9:050. This means that any city that does not have a limitation on the number of quota retail by the drink licenses placed upon them by statute, like the City of Ashland does, may issue these licenses in the same manner that any other alcohol license sought from the city is issued.
In the last legislative session, Senate Bill 110 codified the quota system as to quota retail package licenses leaving the status of quota retail drink licenses relatively unchanged. Therefore the regulatory repeal now means that the license is treated the same as the other 28 city alcohol licenses that a city may currently issue under KRS 243.070.
