Renewal Application - Liquor License

After a renewal application is filed with the Town Clerk’s office, the file is reviewed, and any deficiencies are reported to the applicant prior to the consideration of the application by the Clerk’s Office. Your application is deemed “received” when the application is completed in full and ALL required documents including payments have been provided.  

Generally, these applications are approved administratively by the Clerk’s Office unless they require a hearing. If the application is approved at the administrative level, the Town Clerk’s office will forward the application to the Colorado Department of Revenue, Liquor Licensing Division for review and approval.    Typically, the State will process the application and mail the State’s liquor license to the Town Clerk’s Office within 3-4 weeks.   The Town of Erie license is then prepared, and both licenses are issued to the applicant.

Please file your renewal application with all documentation and payment, to the Town Clerk’s Office no later than 45 days prior to your license expiration or the licensee may face delays, additional fees, possible temporary suspension from State, or Local Licensing Authority (LLA) hearing.  If you have had a violation(s)/disturbance(s) during the last year, then you will be required to attend a hearing with the LLA, scheduled by the Clerk’s Office.  The LLA hearings occur on the 3rd Tuesday of every month and occur at the Erie Municipal Court located at 1000 Telleen Avenue Erie, CO 80516.

The State sends the liquor license renewal applications 90 days before the expiration date. The renewal application, the State check, AND the Town check must ALL be submitted to the Town Clerk's Office at 645 Holbrook Street P.O. Box 750 Erie, CO 80516.
