Cereal Malt Beverage License for Great Grillers BBQ Contest
Heather Kachur, Irish-American Club of Johnson County, has requested approval of a license to sell
cereal malt beverages for consumption at Shawnee Town during the Great Grillers BBQ Contest to be
held on September 24 and 25, 2010.
There is no provision in the Kansas State Statutes for temporary permits for beer sales. Therefore, Ms.
Kachur must meet the same requirements as any other applicant for a cereal malt beverage license and
pay the same fees.
Section 9.07.030 of the Shawnee Municipal Code, allows for the sale, serving, dispensing and
consumption of cereal malt beverages at City sponsored events in accordance with written standards
approved by the City Manager. Administrative Code AC-1-10, approved by City Manager Gonzales,
on August 14, 2007 incorporates the aforementioned written standards. It also defines “City
Sponsored Events” to include the Great Grillers BBQ Contest. A map of Shawnee Town and a copy
of AC-1-10 is attached.
The license fee is $175 of which $25 will be remitted to the State of Kansas for the State CMB stamp.
Staff recommends the Governing Body approve a license for the sale of cereal malt beverages for onpremises consumption at Shawnee Town to the Irish-American Club of Johnson County for the Great
Grillers BBQ contest on September 24 and 25, 2010.
