BILL NUMBER:S3108 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to license fees PURPOSE: Enactment of this legislation would lower the annual fee for a license to sell liquor at retail to be consumed on the premises where sold from fifteen hundred thirty six dollars to eight hundred ninety six dollars in the City of Buffalo, New York. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of this measure amends Subdivision 4 of Section 66 of the Alcoholic Beverage Control law as amended by Chapter 875 of the laws of 1983 by excluding those cities having a population of more than one hundred thousand and less than one million within Erie County from the fifteen hundred thirty six dollar annual liquor license fee. JUSTIFICATION: Past history surrounding this statute indicates that the implementation of these fees was population-based. The present fees no longer reflect the population of the City of Buffalo. The previous differential in liquor license fees reflected a higher population density in urban areas and a lesser population in suburbia.
