Council Members Unsuccessful in Passing Motions to Assure Renewed Liquor License

The banquet hall in Cape Girardeau will be able to have their liquor license renewed.  The renewal comes despite the decision from the city manager to deny it. The renewal was denied because of concerns with public safety. The concerns arose because of shootings that happened there. The decision made by the Liquor License Review Board to keep the denial was overturned. On Monday the city council members were unsuccessful in getting the four necessary to uphold the decision. Members of the council originally casted a vote of 3-2 to award a provisional license for half a year instead of a license for an entire year.
