Tari denied the Liquor license to Hucks. From notes to Liquor Commission minutes, that makes them ineligible for video gaming which is also controlled by the Liquor Commission. The two people Tari named as his assistants didn’t show for the third meeting in a row. That make them ineligible to serve. Since Tari is the only member to show up at meetings, he is responsible for the May 2017 minutes not being available. Were they approved at the June meeting and just not posted? Maybe we will know when June is posted. http://www.cityblm.org/government/boards-commissions/liquor-commission/liquor-commission/-folder-486

Usually the public isn’t aware of what happens at the Liquor Commission. That’s only because there are far too many committees to watch and very little coverage of what they will be discussing.
Tonight Tari is holding a Liquor Commission meeting. I wonder if his fellow commissioners will show up or if Tari will just decide everything himself.
You need to know what’s on the agenda for tonight:
Why does a gas station/convenience store want to sell alcohol by the glass? Do they want to become a bar?
What they really want is video gaming machines. Of course you wouldn’t know that if you didn’t attend Tari’s open house last Friday. He told them he had to do one at a time, not glasses and machines together.
Funny because Tari just ranted about people wasting money on video gaming. The local (supposed) media did too! I wonder if both will be buried on the next Consent Agenda so no discussions take place?
I wonder if the Council will be informed about the real reason they want to sell alcohol by the glass. I wonder if Tari will say getting people drunk so they put more money in video game machines violates what Bloomington stands for. I wonder if nearby residents care.
You are now informed. The meeting is at the very inconvenient 4:00. http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=14216
