The City of Flint is asking concerned residents to attend a forum on party stores and liquor establishments within the city.

In attendance will be the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, City of Flint Legal Department, the Michigan License Beverage Association’s National Hospitality Institute and the Michigan’s Associated Food and Petroleum Dealers. There will be two forums – one for residents and the other for liquor licensees – on how to create safer environments for patrons.

The first forum is this evening and is open to all Flint-area residents. It’s being held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Mott Community College’s Community Event Center located at 1401 E. Court Street.

The second forum for liquor licensees only will be held on November 12th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Owners will be able to meet with guest speakers to discuss their concerns on how to have a better relationship with both patrons and city officials as well as other community groups.

According to the MLBA there is only a handful of grocery stores within city limits and many residents depend on their neighborhood party store for food and grocery items. Some of the other concerns expected to be addressed include: clean up of trash and debris on their property, loitering, signage, illegal selling of DVD’s in parking lots, and the misuse of EBT cards.
