IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING LIQUOR LICENSE RENEWALS:
 
Pursuant to Governor Hogan’s Order titled “Extending Certain Licenses, Permits, Registrations, and Other Governmental Authorizations, and Authorizing Suspension of Legal Time Requirements,” dated March 12, 2020, as well as, County Executive Ball’s Executive Order 2020-03, dated March 16, 2020, the Board of Licensing Commissioners has suspended the April 1st deadline to submit renewal applications for alcoholic beverage licenses. 
 
Additionally, pursuant to the aforementioned orders by the Governor and the County Executive, the Board of Licensing Commissioners also suspends the expiration date on current alcoholic beverage licenses.  The suspension of the renewal deadline and expiration date shall be in effect until thirty (30) days after the date by which the state of emergency is terminated and the catastrophic health emergency is rescinded. 
 
Please continue to check the Howard County Board of License Commissioner’s website for specific updates regarding renewal deadlines and current license expiration.
 

 

In Howard County, the five Council Members also sit as the local Board of License Commissioners, commonly known as the Liquor Board. Their duties, which are described in State law, include issuing and revoking licenses to sell alcoholic beverages and assuring adherence to Maryland laws and the county's rules and regulations pertaining to the sale of alcoholic beverages.

The Liquor Board has delegated its authority to conduct hearings and render decisions on cases involving alcoholic beverages in the County to a five-member Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board. The Hearing Board’s members are representative of the five council districts. Each member of the County Council nominates three people from the district he or she represents to fill a vacancy from that district. The County Executive appoints one member from the nominees, subject to confirmation by the County Council.

Applications for alcoholic beverage licenses in Howard County are accepted and processed by the Administrator for the Board of License Commissioners in the County Council office. These applications are for new liquor licenses, transfer requests, extension of premises, officer changes, a resident agent change, a change of class or for temporary and special liquor licenses. The application shall be prepared by the applicants or under the applicant’s personal supervision. The application must be fully completed before the application will be processed by the Administrator.

Application forms may be accessed from this website or by calling the Liquor Board Administrator, Robin Regner, at (410) 313-2395, who also is the point of contact for alcoholic beverage licensing and related matters
