Action: 2.3 Application to transfer a Class B2 license (On premises consumption – all alcoholic liquors) from Shaun Kocel, an individual, d/b/a Shaun’s Place, to GLH Capital Enterprise Inc. d/b/a Birger’s Pub at 201 East Main Street #1-B
John Schneider, attorney from Johnson, Schneider & Ferrell in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, was present to address questions from the Commission on behalf of the applicant. Questions and comments from the Commission included the number of terminals being requested, whether a B2 classification is the best fit for this establishment, the ability of the applicant to meet the requirement of 51% non-gaming revenue with its current layout and capacity, changing the layout to increase capacity, reporting the day-to-day revenue sales, and how video gaming revenue is monitored.
Also present on behalf of the applicant was Mr. Richard Brizendine to address any additional questions, comments, or concerns from the Commission.
MOTION: Approve the transfer of the B2 liquor license from Shaun Kocel d/b/a Shaun's Place to GLH Capital Enterprise Inc. d/b/a Birger’s Pub, contingent upon receipt of all outstanding items and with the limitation of having no more than three video gaming terminals.
Mr. Schneider wanted to clarify that the state allows for a facility to have five video gaming machines and that at any time the applicant can come before the Commission to request additional machines.
It was asked if the applicant can legally have five gaming machines then why limit the applicant to three terminals. Capping the video gaming terminals to three could ensure that the applicant will generate less than 51% of non-gaming revenue as required.
Motion by Adam Loos, second by Tom Grant. Final Resolution: Motion Carries Yea: Jessica Bradshaw, Lee Fronabarger, Tom Grant, Adam Loos, John M Henry Nay: Carolin Harvey, Navreet Kang
