SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The City of Iowa City requested an appeal to the Iowa Alcoholic Beverage Division on the state’s decision to renew two downtown bars’ liquor licenses.

On Dec. 15, 2009, Administrative Law Judge Margaret LaMarche granted the owners of 3rd Base, 111 E. College St., and Et Cetrea, 118 S. Dubuque St., permission to keep their liquor licenses — the Iowa City City Council had denied the renewals because it believes the bars have high underage-drinking rates.

Alcoholic-division head Lynn Walding will make the decision on the establishments’ fates.

Walding will decide whether to support LaMarche’s decision before either party can appeal to district court.

Walding said the division has 30-60 days after the briefs are filed to make a decision.
