Business Affairs & Licensing

The Business Affairs and Licensing Committee meets on the last Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM. Please check the calendar page each month for the location of the meeting and tentative agenda.

The Business Affairs and Licensing Committee reviews applications for the various types of liquor licenses granted by the New York State Liquor Authority, including requests for transfers and alterations. The committee also ensures that licensed establishments in Manhattan Community District 6 operate according to what was presented to the Board and the community. 

The committee also spearheads discussion on economic development, consumer protection issues, and helps mediate community concerns with businesses.
