The city of Chandler is cutting liquor license renewal fees and is pushing back their due dates by three months to help bars and restaurants hit hard by COVID-19.
The Chandler City Council approved the actions Thursday after being recommended by City Manager Marsha Reed.
“This is an easy way to help a lot of businesses,” said Mayor Kevin Hartke.“It’s not a lot of money for each individual business, but it adds up and will be a welcome respite for each and every one of the businesses that are impacted.”
Liquor license renewals will be cut by 50 percent for 2020. They usually range between $300 and $1,000.
Chandler has extended the due date for liquor license renewals to September 30th with no late fee penalties. They were originally due by June 30th.
