Meetings Set in Sheridan, Buffalo on Liquor Law Changes

Dispensing rooms will no longer be licensed in Wyoming under a law passed by this year's Legislature.

Sheridan County Clerk Eda Schunk Thompson said Senate File 45 changed the law so that fees cover the entire building where liquor is served rather than individual dispensing rooms.

Thompson said in fact, SF 45 was one of six bills that passed into law this year, and all six will be the focus of a town hall meeting in Sheridan on April 3.

The event will be in the public meeting room, Room 210, of the Sheridan County Courthouse and is open to all local licensing authorities, other city and county officials, license holders and others interested in the new laws. The event will be conducted by the Wyoming Liquor Division of the Department of Revenue.

In addition to SF 45, other new laws deal with the license revocation process, manufacturing, non-operational status, archaic laws and bar and grill licenses.

A meeting is also scheduled in Buffalo on April 4 starting at 7:30 a.m., and Thompson said anyone who's unable to attend the meeting in Sheridan may attend the one in Buffalo.
