BILL NUMBER: S5383 SPONSOR: COMRIE TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to authorizing the establishment of a liaison between the state liquor authority and local community boards, and the New York alcoholic beverage control problem premises task force PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill authorizes the State Liquor Authority (SLA) to establish a community liaison to help facilitate communication between the Authority and the various Community Boards located in New York City. Facilitating communication between the SLA and local New York City Community Boards is important so that such community boards have a better idea of the kinds of applications that are pending before the SLA. Further, it will make it easier for the SLA to take into account the suggestions and comments of each Community Board and individuals who live in the commu- nities under the jurisdiction of such community boards with regards to licenses and permits issued by the SLA for the consumption and sale of alcoholic beverages.
