Village, town address license fees for alcohol

Ozaukee Press Staff

The Ozaukee County Hospitality Association requested municipalities lower liquor and beer licensing fees since Gov. Tony Evers’ Safer-at-Home order caused restaurants and bars to close for months due to the coronavirus.

The Belgium Village Board this month unanimously voted to direct Village Attorney Gerry Antoine to cut licensing fees in half for the year, which would result in a loss of $2,300 in revenue.

“Financially, we can absorb that,” Treasurer Vickie Boehnlein said.

The Belgium Town Board this month unanimously voted to reduce fees on its two licenses — Cedar Beach Inn and Lake Church Inn. It would be a loss of $325 in revenue.
