The Barnstable Licensing Authority is looking at new techniques for assessing, estimating and certifying the town’s seasonal populace, which could enhance the range of seasonal package deal suppliers permitted in Hyannis.
Chairman Martin Hoxie on Monday reported there are 24 deal retailers in town – 10 of which are to promote only beer and wine, and 14 that are all-alcoholic beverages.
“It comes down to no matter if the group feels we want supplemental seasonal package deal retail outlet licenses,” Liz Hartsgrove, Barnstable Licensing director, claimed. It is an problem that came up in 2019 but the Licensing Board selected not to pursue it.
Provincetown works with its Town Clerk’s Place of work and Inspectional Services to validate the variety of summer rentals and brief-time period rentals when calculating its once-a-year seasonal population estimate, Hartsgrove stated. Similarly, Nantucket’s Planning and Enhancement Office compiles a very similar report for its licensing authority through the police office.

Hoxie requested Hartsgrove to get started a similar interdepartmental process in Barnstable to aid establish an estimated seasonal populace for 2022.
Commissioner Nancy Karlson-Lidman asked no matter if incorporating a person further license following yr would expire if the seasonal inhabitants subsequently fell. If not, “then we would be looking to boost our licenses on a seasonal basis,” she mentioned.
“The Authority has long gone on record for quite a few decades that they sense the town had been sufficiently served by the existing number of package deal outlets,” Hartsgrove later emailed. “Their dialogue and sentiment improve these days exhibits receptiveness toward broadening the dialogue outward to make sure what standards are in spot are thoroughly aligned with the requires of the neighborhood it serves.”
Barnstable liquor license transfers
Acknowledging that the sale of liquor licenses also has been an concern in Barnstable, Commissioner Larry Decker requested Hartsgrove to map the destinations of Barnstable’s 24 package deal retailers and investigation the license transfer procedure regionally.
In Belmont, deal retailer licenses are the property of the town and are unable to be transferred and marketed, Hartsgrove reported. There is a waitlist and selectmen evaluate each applicant. Liquor license transfers in Edgartown must be applied for as a new license and go by way of a vetting approach. The town of Dennis does not prohibit the sale or transfer of liquor licenses, but it has a documented course of action of what comes about when a liquor license is revoked.
“That is one thing Barnstable is lacking,” Hartsgrove said.
As Decker noted, businesses that are promoting their licenses have designed sizeable gains.
“They (the licenses) really should revert back to the town,” claimed Commissioner John Flores. “I don’t see it as an asset that need to be marketed from one person to yet another.”
Barnstable businesses have a extended heritage of offering liquor licenses, and the point out Alcoholic Drinks Command Commission has generally authorized it, Hoxie stated.

“This is one thing that you fellas have to feel about,” she told the board. “I will guidebook you (by way of the public listening to procedure), so you get the community’s enter.”
Hoxie agreed with Flores and Karlson-Lidman, that there need to be no monetary worth to a liquor license.
When the Licensing Authority’s guidelines and restrictions had been very last evaluated in 2015, “we went through almost a year’s well worth of perform sessions to rewrite the policies and rules,” Hartsgrove claimed. She encouraged commissioners to establish a extensive record of distinct modifications they would like to see.
