The City of Morris has issued temporary permits for restaurants that hold on-sale liquor licenses to allow them to expand liquor sales and seating to an outdoor area and to begin serving food with alcohol outdoors. The permit is being issued in response to the governor’s Executive Order allowing restaurants to open up with outdoor seating only as long as they follow specific rules and regulations.

The temporary permit is for the period June 1 until July 31, 2020 or whenever the governor may change the rules for restaurants, at which time the permit will automatically expire. The City of Morris is also requiring on-sale liquor license holders to provide a map of their premises showing the expanded seating, proof of liquor liability insurance covering the expansion, an indication that the expansion area is cordoned off with limited access, and an indication there is a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan in place.
