Initiated by: Admiral Beverage Corporation
Under NMSA 1978 § 60-6B-4, the governing body is required to conduct a public hearing on the application and must, by roll call vote, approve or disapprove the requested application. The hearing is quasi-judicial in nature and must be conducted accordingly.
Admiral Beverage Corporation, located at 515 E. Brasher Road, Roswell, NM 88201, has applied for a Spirits/Beer/Wine Wholesaler Liquor License, Application No. 1184754.
In considering whether to approve or disapprove the application, the governing body may only disapprove of the application if it finds substantial evidence to support one of the follows:
• The proposed location is within an area which the sale of alcoholic beverages is prohibited by the laws of New Mexico; or
• The issuance or transfer would be in violation of zoning or other ordinance of the governing body; or
• The issuance or transfer of a license would be detrimental to the public health, safety, or morals of the residents of the local option district. The governing body is required to notify the Director of Alcohol and Gaming Division of the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department within thirty (30) days of the public hearing whether it has approved or disapproved the application. This is done by the City Clerk.
