The Grayslake Village Board is considering amending the Village's liquor ordinance to add a new license classification. The class 'K' license would allow a hotel to sell alcoholic liquor, not in the original package, for consumption on premise of the hotel by hotel guests or attendees of the scheduled reception events.
Some restrictions would include no liquor sales through room service, or from 12 a.m. - 12 p.m.
The ordinance would allow the , Grayslake's only hotel, to sell the liquor, according to Mayor Rhett Taylor. "Having lost an area reception hall, this will allow them to have receptions and gatherings at the hotel," Taylor said referring to
Taylor recommended the ordinance amendment to the trustees, saying it would offer hotel guests a controlled environment to drink and not have to go elsewhere.
Trustees Jeff Werfel, Amy Edwards, Shawn Vogel and Kevin Waldenstrom agreed to have the ordinance drafted. Taylor said Trustees Ron Jarvis and Bruce Basset, who were not present at the Village Board meeting August 7, had already expressed their support to him.
