PENTICTON - Patrons of the Fraternal Order of Eagles may soon be able to enjoy an alcoholic beverage on the patio.
City council agreed earlier this week to support the Eagles’ application the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch to licence the patio for an additional 24 patrons.
City Building and Permitting Manager Ken Kunka said the public notification process had been completed, eliciting one letter of non-support, and no letters of support.
The main issues opposing the licensing change involved increased traffic around the intersection of Calgary Avenue and Main Street, and noise and smoke from patrons during the evening hours.
The recommendation also comes with provisions limiting hours of service on the patio from 12 noon to 10 p.m., with no music to be played on the patio.
The application is now in the hands of the provincial regulation branch.
