Special Designated Liquor Licenses

The fee for a Special Designated Liquor License is specified in the application and is payable to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. The fee must accompany the application when it is submitted to Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. Special Designated Liquor Licenses are limited to six days per year per applicant.

You can download the application here for a Special Designated Liquor License. If you are a non-profit organization you will need to fill out a different application.

NOTE: You will need to contact the Dakota County Clerk about your Special Designated Liquor License. You will also need to request to be placed on the agenda for the Dakota County Board of Commissioners.

There are no publication requirements for a Special Designated Liquor License but it does require County Board approval. Once the Clerk’s office receives the request, it will be submitted to the County Board for approval on their agenda.

The County Board will review the request at their meeting and make a recommendation for approval or denial. After the meeting, their recommendation is forwarded to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission.
We will contact you when the license comes in.

Effective August 1, 2000, the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission will not accept special designated license applications received less than 10 working days (excluding holidays) prior to the date of the event.

In addition, the County Board has certain dates that it does not meet. (Calendar)
