2. Complete the Application:
Prospective permit holders should complete the application (front and back), sign and notarize it, and send it to the above address along with the $100 non-refundable processing fee that is charged for filing an application. Applicants will be required to pay the appropriate permit fee once the permit is ready to be processed. If an opening exists in the area requested by the applicant, processing will begin once the permit fee is submitted. (Permit quotas are based on population in a taxing district.) If there is no opening, the application will be held until an opening is available.

When processing begins, a notice is sent to the local legislative authority (city council or township trustees and county commissioners) and local police department (chief of police or township police and county sheriff).
4. Opportunity for Legislative Authority or Nearby Public Institution to Object:
A Licensing Office compliance officer makes a physical inspection of the applicant’s premises, draws a diagram of the premises and surveys the area within a 500 foot radius of the business to determine if there are any churches, schools, playgrounds, libraries or township parks within 500 feet. Those public institutions that are within 500 feet of the proposed permit premises are notified of their right to object to the issuance of the permit.
5. Division Checks the “Wet/Dry” Status of Proposed Permit Location:
When an application is received, the Division sends a letter to the county Board of Elections to determine the precinct in which the applicant’s business is located. When this information is received, the division checks to determine whether the location is wet for the type of beverages that the applicant wishes to sell.

If a hearing is requested by either the legislative body or a public institution, the applicant is notified by certified mail as to the time and place of the hearing. The applicant may be represented by an attorney at the hearing.

If no hearing is requested, no objection is filed by the local police, and no adverse information is discovered through the local police or the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCII), the permit could be issued within ten to twelve weeks, but no sooner than 15 days from the filing date. If a hearing is held, the results are sent by certified mail to the applicant and the objector. If the objections are overruled, the legislative body may file an appeal within 30 days of the order to the Ohio Liquor Control Commission. Public institutions do not have the right to appeal.
