Council okays two off-sale liquor licenses

By John P. LevellApril 1, 2002 6:30 PM – Despite being the first of April, two off-sale liquor licenses in Lanesboro may no longer be viewed as a simple Fool’s Day prank. Indeed at the group’s most recent bi-monthly meeting, the Lanesboro City Council officially adopted a resolution to the current licensing ordinance that specifically allows for two off-sale liquor facilities within city limits.

The unexpected decision on how best to resolve this somewhat controversial issue was preceded by a rather lengthy and convoluted discussion, during which council members Peggy Hanson and Hal Cropp repeatedly apologized for "the lack of due process" exhibited by the council in repealing the original single off-sale license provision of Public Ordinance 8176 at a previous council meeting. This was apparently done largely to appease Jim Iverson, owner of the Root River Saloon, which until now was Lanesboro’s only legally licensed off-sale liquor business.

Iverson, who was in attendance, had provided the council with a petition signed by 162 of his regular patrons all opposed to two off-sale licenses in Lanesboro. While doing so, Iverson said he could have easily gotten more, as "many in town believe two liquor stores are too many for a town of Lanesboro’s size." Iverson also reviewed the potential impact to his business including the probable reduction of the Saloon’s commercial resale value. Other citizens in the audience commented in favor of Iverson’s position as well.

Phil Dybing, who had applied for a off-sale license a few weeks ago only to withdraw it amid the controversy, then followed Iverson. Dybing began by stating that his main reason for attending this meeting was to assure everyone that "nothing fishy or under the table" was intended by the submission of his off-sale license application. When queried regarding what type of product would be stocked in his planned shop, Dybing responded "primarily wines, brown bottle micro-brews, some gins and vodkas, and possibly accessories such as locally made wine racks, bottle openers, and other related items." Later, just prior to the council voting on this issue, Dybing added that the recent withdrawal of his license application might very likely remain permanent regardless of any subsequent council actions.

In between, John Pieper, owner of the Old Village Hall suggested that in-house liquor licenses should be examined at the s .....
