City won't expand liquor license quota
Wal-Mart officials have approached the New Richmond City Council asking that the community expand the number of Class A liquor licenses available to businesses.
Due to its own ordinances, the city currently is limited to four such full liquor licenses and all are spoken for.
Wal-Mart's request received the cold shoulder at Monday's regular council meeting. On a 6-0 vote, council members rejected the proposal to increase the quota of licenses available.
