Agenda Title:

Council action is requested on the application received from Jay Mavdi 1, LLC, to transfer the existing Intoxicating Liquor in the Original Package License, Sunday Sales License and Liquor Tasting License for Crown Liquor #3 located at 3900 S. Noland Road to the new operator of this establishment [Item postponed from December 19, 2016 and January 3, 2017 Council Meetings.]

This application meets the requirements of the City’s Alcoholic Beverage Code.


In 2011 the City Council approved an application for XO Corporation D.B.A. World Liquors to sell Intoxicating Liquor in the Original Package, Sunday Sales and Liquor Tasting Licenses. XO Corporation sold this location to Jay Mavdi 1, LLC. 


Jay Mavdi 1, LLC applied for a liquor license with Ms. Nancy Whiton as the Managing Officer.  Due to prior liquor license violations under this Managing Officer at other locations, the City Council denied the application on September 6, 2016.


The applicant submitted an application with a new Managing Officer and is again requesting Council approval to transfer the existing liquor license to the new owner of this establishment.


The LLC appointed Mr. Peter A Hazelton as Managing Officer for purposes of this liquor license.  Mr. Hazelton is active in other licenses issued by the Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control. The background investigation conducted by the Police Department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol on Mr. Hazelton and the corporate members revealed they do not have any violations that would disqualify them from obtaining a liquor license from the City.


Maps are attached to demonstrate the following conditions that the City Council shall consider in reviewing the application: 

  • Whether the location is within 300 feet of any residential zoning district and whether the proposed licensed operation would cause a nuisance or change in the character of the residential area.
  • The proximity of the proposed location to a school, church, hospital, public park, playground, library or museum.
  • The number and type of licenses existing within 1500 feet of the proposed location. 
  • The type of business or commercial uses within 1500 of the proposed location and the general character and intensity of uses permitted by the Zoning Ordinance. 


Applicable City departments reviewed the application and the attached Inspection Report includes their comments.
