Liquor License

The County Clerk is responsible for the issuance of county liquor licenses.  If you have applied for a state liquor license YOU MUST also apply for a County liquor license.  If the business is located in an incorporated area of the County, a license is required within those city limits, also.

To Obtain a County Liquor License (New Businesses)

  1. The applicant must first apply and obtain their state liquor license from the State of Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control.
  2. Submit or bring a copy of the state license(s) to the County Clerks Office and the appropriate license fees. License fees for county liquor licenses correspond with the state license fees in addition to a $3.00 filing fee for each license obtained. The forms of payment accepted are cash and check.
  3. Of the license fee to be paid for any such license, the applicant shall pay as many 12ths as there are months (part of a month counted as a month) remaining from the date of the license to the next succeeding July 1
  4. The Clerks Office can not issue a license until you have applied and received your license from the state. However, you are required to obtain a County license as soon as you receive your state confirmation. 
  5. The County Clerks Office will issue the liquor license immediately. If staff is unavailable to process the license, it will be mailed out within three business days.
  6. County liquor licenses expire annually on June 30th.
