Council re-votes on Cedar House Grill liquor license

Posted January 22, 2015 at 12:31 pm

The El Dorado Springs City Council re-voted on Monday, Jan. 19, at their regular meeting to allow the Cedar House Grill to have a resort liquor license.

The issue was presented by Councilman Jim Luster who said, “I was pretty ill at ease after the last meeting and I decided to look into some personal questions.”

Luster said that he talked with both the state liquor control and the city attorney since that meeting. According to City Attorney Bryan Brackenridge, since the applicant had met city requirements, the council should have approved the license.

Luster said, “I was wrong in my original analysis of it. If all requirements are met, it must be approved.”

He went on to say that he did not like the expansion of lounges and
