Back taxes stall application for liquor license
Relatively small compared to its neighboring Ramsey County cities, with fewer than 13,000 residents, Mound View is home to three off-sale liquor stores, each located just off County Highway 10 and less than a mile apart from each other.
The possibility of adding a fourth liquor store was voted down by Mounds View City Council last week at the recommendation of city staff, much to the appreciation of several residents in the council chambers that night.
The 5-0 vote, however, was not based on the residents’ comments opposing the idea of a new liquor store opening at 2408 County Road I. Instead, the denial was due to ordinance restrictions that the applicant needed to sort out before continuing the application process.
The next meeting of the Ramsey County Library Board will be Wednesday, April 20. The meeting will be held in the board room of the Ramsey County Library in Roseville, 2180 Hamline Avenue North, starting at 6:30 p.m.
