Detroit Lakes liquor license fees increase 50 percent
Liquor license fees in Detroit Lakes will be increasing 50 percent. For most, that's not too steep, but for on-sale, it will be a $1,000 increase.
Liquor license fees that will increase are on-sale intoxicating liquor, from $2,000 to $3,000 a year. Most liquor fees have not been raised in 13 years. An investigative fee of $250 will be charged for new licenses.
Several bar owners spoke at Tuesday evening's Detroit Lakes City Council meeting about the jump in fees.
