The License Appeal Commission receives appeals from decisions of the Local Liquor Control Commissioner (Mayor) revoking, suspending, or denying liquor licenses.

The License Appeal Commission (LAC) is the immediate forum of appeal for suspensions, revocations, and fines imposed by the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection against a liquor license holder. Additionally, the LAC deals with appeals for denied liquor license applications, denied changes in management/ownership of an existing liquor license, and refusals of liquor license renewals issued by the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection.
