Mitchell City Council Approves VFW Liquor License Transfer

Mitchell City Council Approves VFW Liquor License Transfer


The Mitchell City Council on Monday night approved the transfer of the VFW’s liquor license to its new location.  The VFW is moving about a block north from their previous location to 215 North Main Street.  Jim Johnston, owner of Harve’s Sport Shop, again addressed the council to express concerns about smokers congregating outside of the VFW next to his store.  Concerns about parking were also raised at the meeting.

Councilman Mel Olson said there are only two legal reasons why the council could deny the transfer: character of the applicant and improper location of the establishment.

Mitchell VFW Commander Pat Ziegler says he and the VFW staff will encourage smokers to smoke out back rather than at the front of the bar.

The vote to approve the transfer was unanimous.
