Restaurants: Colerain Working to Make It Easier For Outdoor Liquor Sales

Chief of Police Mark Denney has reached out to the Division of Liquor Control asking them to relax regulations surrounding outside liquor sales in our businesses that have an existing liquor permit.


The State of Ohio has agreed to temporarily modify their existing requirements for extending liquor permits by waiving inspections and the several week wait.


For the next 90 days, or until this change is rescinded by Governor DeWine, businesses with active liquor permits may expand outside the premises without inspection (but no further than their property line) by complying with the following provisions:


1. Notify the Ohio Department of Commerce-Division of Liquor Control, in writing, of their intent to expand

2. Provide a sketch of the area of the requested expansion.


The State has agreed to allow the Township to collect these letters and sketches and send them, with a letter of support from the Township, as a packet to the Liquor Commission.


The township will collect these each week and mail them every Friday during this temporary period. Please email or drop-off a letter (on company letterhead), and a hand-drawn sketch of the expanded premises to our Police Department:






4200 Springdale Road Cincinnati, Ohio 45251 Attn: Police Department


You may elect to send them directly to the State if you wish by sending them to:


Ohio Department of Commerce-Division of Liquor Control

6606 Tussing Road

Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068


Together, we will get through the pandemic.
