New York Alcoholic Beverage Control Law
Change in Duration of Permits
The liquor authority is authorized to change the periods during which permits authorized by sections ninety-one, ninety-one-a, ninety-two, ninety-two-a, ninety-three, ninety-three-a, ninety-four, ninety-five, ninety-six, ninety-six-a and ninety-nine-b of this article, shall be effective and to establish the commencement dates, duration and expiration dates thereof, provided that no such permit shall be effective for a period in excess of three years. When any change or changes are made in the duration of any such permit, the permit fee shall be equal to the annual permit fee specified in this article multiplied by the number of years for which such permit is issued. Any other provision of any other law to the contrary notwithstanding, an applicant, other than a not-for-profit organization as defined in section one hundred seventy-nine-q of the state finance law, shall not be issued a temporary permit pursuant to section ninety-seven of this article for events to take place upon any premise for which the authority has issued any license, or has issued a permit more than four times within any one year period, provided however that the authority may, in its sole discretion, issue additional single permits if it shall determine upon the issuance of each that (a) the application for such permit is not an attempt to circumvent licensing provisions of this chapter, and
(b) the issuance of such permit would not be a detriment to the community or the surrounding neighborhood as such shall be determined by the authority after consultation with municipal authorities and police agencies and community boards for the purpose of reviewing community or neighborhood or police agency complaints, or violations of state or local laws. The liquor authority may make such rules as shall be appropriate to carry out the purpose of this section.
