The County Council’s Ad Hoc Committee on Liquor Control


Last December, Councilmembers Hans Riemer, George Leventhal and Marc Elrich sent a memo to their colleagues requesting that a Council ad hoc committee be created to study the County’s Department of Liquor Control (DLC) and its current system of distributing alcohol to restaurants and retail beer and wine stores.

Since February, the Ad Hoc Committee on Liquor Control has held worksessions to look at five options presented in an Office of Legislative Oversight (OLO) report on the County’s Department of Liquor Control (DLC). The OLO report studied the current system that controls liquor distribution to County-operated retail alcohol stores, to private beer and wine stores and to restaurants.

The committee has heard from George Griffin, director of the Department of Liquor Control; restaurant owners; owners of private beer and wine stores; and representatives of the alcohol industry.
