Public Hearing Notice

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held at Noon on Monday, May 12, 2014, in Room 142 of Gerberding Hall, on the UW Seattle campus.  The purpose of the hearing is to allow all interested persons an opportunity to present their views, either orally or in writing, on the proposed amendments to WAC 478-136-041, “Alcoholic Beverage Policy,” and WAC 478-137-050, “Limitations on Use.”

Due to recent changes in the state Liquor Control Board’s rules for the special occasion license, the University proposes making administrative changes to its alcoholic beverage policy. The University also proposes to clarify rules pertaining to third-party vendors, restrictions at athletic venues, and the time frame for obtaining a license or permit.

Advance copies of the proposed WAC rules may be obtained by contacting Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, Director of Rules Coordination, Box 351210, Seattle, WA 98195-1210 or by phone at 206-543-9219.  Copies will also be available at the hearing.
