Deadline looms for beer, biz license renewals
To avoid being shut down on New Year’s, Summit County Clerk Sue Follett cautions merchants in Park City and unincorporated Summit County to renew their licenses to sell beer before the end of the year.
"It’s very significant because a lot of these establishments have got tourists in for the holidays and I don’t want to shut people down," Follett said, adding that no businesses have been closed in the county during her four years as clerk.
Licenses can be renewed via mail or at the County Courthouse in Coalville, she said, adding that several weeks ago business owners should have received renewal notices by mail.
"Any businesses that don’t have [licenses] & I will send a list to the Sheriff’s Office and they will shut them down," Follett said, adding that the clerk will process renewals received by mail as late as Dec. 30.
"Enforcement is enforcement," she said. "It’s a holiday and alcohol is always an issue with partying and drinking and driving, so we want to try to make it as safe for citizens and tourists as we can."
Clerk’s Office personnel may contact business owners who haven’t renewed beer licenses by Dec. 29.
"It’s just a gentle reminder," Summit County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Sherm Farnsworth said, adding that most business owners comply with the year-end alcohol regulations.
With business-license renewals due also at the end of the year, Follett insists only establishments that sell alcohol are subject to closure New Years Day.

The field in the Park City Council primary election briefly addressed the Black Lives Matter mural that was put on Main Street in 2020, an indication there continues to be simmering emotions about the polarizing work and the process that led to the creation of the mural.
