The Vita Arena Board is hoping that they will be able to obtain a liquor license exclusively for use within the community center.
On behalf of the Vita Arena Board of Directors, Shane Chubaty requested that the RM of Stuartburn council consider allowing the arena to have a liquor license.
Council noted that there is currently no provision in the municipality for a new class of liquor license and a public vote would be required before council could approve it.
It was suggested that a referendum be held as part of the upcoming municipal elections however the request was made too late to include it as part of the process.
Chubaty told council that he would take that information back to the arena board where they will discuss the matter further before any further action is taken.
A permanent liquor license would allow the arena to serve alcohol at all it’s event without having to apply for a license each time.
