Liquor Licensing Information
General Licensing Information
Liquor and/or Beer Licenses run from July 1st to June 30th.
The City of Shawano will mail out reminder letters for license renewals in March of every year. We no longer mail out hard copies of the renewal forms, however all forms can be obtained on our website or by stopping in to City Hall.
Please remember to also go to the "Non-Liquor Licensing Information" page to find your other required applications (i.e. Amusement, Cigarette, etc.).
State Law requires that all applications for liquor and/or beer licenses must be submitted to the City Clerk's office at least fifteen (15) days before the Common Council may act upon the application.

Please note that if you are applying for an Original Liquor License or would like to make a change to your current Agent or Owner information you MUST contact City Hall to obtain the proper paperwork.

Payment InformationA $20.00 fee is due at the time of filing a liquor license application to cover the publication cost. The entire license fee may also be paid at this time to avoid the end of June rush. This also provides more flexibility in who picks up the license. No separate invoice will be sent. If payment is received at time of filing, the City will deliver the license at the end of June; no need to remember to pick them up.
