On April 6, 2012, TFH, LLC – Sole Member - Mughetto Holley, filed an application to be used at THE BAR 80, 117 Main Street, Opheim, Valley County, Montana.
Protests against an application must be (1) made in writing, (2) mailed to the Department of Revenue, Liquor Licensing, PO Box 1712, Helena, Montana 59624-1712, and (3) received and date stamped by the Department no later than the 4th day of June, 2012. Protests will be accepted from residents of the county from which the application originates, residents of adjoining counties, or residents of adjoining counties in another state if the state of residence of the person has certified to the department that a similarly situated Montana resident would be able to make a formal protest of a liquor license application in that state or county.
Each protestor is required to mail a separate letter that contains in legible print, the protesters' full name, mailing address, and street address. Each letter must be signed by the protestor. Protest petitions bearing the names and signatures of more than one protestor will not be considered. Protest letters must provide the trade name, or applicant name associated with the license being protested for identification purposes. Protest letters must contain a clear statement of the writer’s intent to protest the application. The grounds for protest of an application for a new license are limited to those set out in section 16-4-405, MCA for denial of a license, and public convenience and necessity as set forth in section 16-4-203, MCA. Protest letters which do not provide the information described in this paragraph will not be considered valid protest letters. Only those grounds for protest raised in valid protest letters will be considered at hearing. An individual’s testimony at hearing will be limited to the grounds for protest raised in that individual’s valid protest letter.
If the department receives a sufficient number of protests to require a hearing pursuant to section 16-4-207(4)(a), MCA, a hearing will be scheduled in Helena, Montana. If the department receives a sufficient number of protests to require a hearing pursuant to section 16-4-207(4)(b), MCA, to determine public convenience and necessity, a hearing will be held in the county in which the proposed premises is located. All qualified protestors will be notified of the time, date, and location of the hearing. Hearings are typically scheduled within 90 days following the protest deadline.
If a sufficient number of protests to require a hearing are not received and all licensing criteria have been satisfied, the department may issue the license without holding a hearing.
