The Ohio Division of Liquor Control announced Friday that it would be extending the May 18 deadline for renewing C and D liquor permits. This extension applies to permits set to expire June 1. A new deadline will be established once the order banning on-premises consumption is lifted.
“We are listening and recognize the financial strain of permit renewal fees to businesses at this time. Extending the deadline will provide economic relief to permit holders by giving them some breathing room for renewal submissions,” said DOLC Superintendent Jim Canepa in a press release.
Holders of permits set to expire June 1 are eligible to take advantage of this extension. This encompasses approximately 8,400 establishments holding roughly 20,000 permits in the Western portion of the state; a full list of included counties can be found here. If a business has already mailed in its extension, DOLC will contact them to determine if they’d like to proceed with their renewal or wait for the new deadline.
