Activist Challenges Council On Liquor
Activist Challenges Council On Liquor

Listen
AIR DATE: August 13, 2013

Last week, we heard from neighborhood activist Martin Dean DuPalo. He said the city was disregarding the needs of the neighborhood when it routinely granted a hard liquor license to Walmart. He said that drunks have already caused enough damage and have no shortage of establishments selling them liquor. He was incensed that the city now requires a $750 fee to notify his neighbors before the council will hear his objections. Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Coffin said the store fitted within existing guidelines and supported the store's application. But does N. Nellis Boulevard need more liquor outlets? And how democratic is a system that requires a payment of $750 before the council will listen?
