§ 54. License to sell beer at retail for consumption off the premises.
1. Any person may apply to the appropriate board for a license to sell
beer at retail not to be consumed upon the premises where sold. Such
application shall be in writing and verified and shall contain such
information as the liquor authority shall require. Such application
shall be accompanied by a check or draft for the amount required by this
article for such license. The term "premises" shall include any duly
licensed supply ship operating in harbors in Lake Erie.
2. In the event that the liquor authority issues such license it shall
forward the same to the applicant.
3. If the authority shall disapprove an application for a license or
permit, it shall state and file in its offices the reasons therefor and
shall notify the applicant thereof. Such applicant may thereupon apply
to the liquor authority for a review of such action in a manner to be
prescribed by the rules of the liquor authority. A hearing upon notice
to the applicant shall thereupon be held by the liquor authority or by
one of its members at its office most conveniently situated to the
office of its duly authorized representative in a manner to be
prescribed in its rules; and on such hearing proof may be taken by oral
testimony or by affidavit relative thereto. After such hearing, if the
liquor authority confirms such disapproval, it shall endorse such
application accordingly and shall send notice to the applicant of its
action in such form as the liquor authority may prescribe. If the liquor
authority does not confirm the disapproval action it may grant such
application and issue such license.
4. No such license shall be issued, however, to any person for any
premises other than a grocery store, drug store, or duly licensed supply
ship operating in harbors in Lake Erie.
5. Such license shall contain a description of the licensed premises
and in form and in substance shall be a license to the person
specifically designated therein to sell beer at retail in the premises
specifically licensed, not to be consumed upon said premises.
