Wheaton City Council Highlights
Meeting: July 18, 2011
Liquor Control Ordinance Modified; County Fair Granted License Extension
Wheaton’s Liquor Control Ordinance states that Class F Liquor License holders can have a maximum of 12 one-day events per year that serve liquor, and only three of those days can be consecutive. The Council approved a modification to its Liquor Control Ordinance that allows for up to five consecutive days of events serving liquor, but only with the City Council’s approval for such instances. Upon approving this ordinance, the Council approved a request from the DuPage County Fair to serve liquor during its upcoming five-day event.

Hodgkinson also helped individuals with special needs by serving as a founding board member of the Illinois Special Olympics and with the DuPage County Paratransit Program. The Council thanked Hodgkinson for her many years of distinguished service to the community.
