Summary:

The Olathe Chamber of Commerce will again be hosting Fourth Fridays in downtown Olathe, with the support of many generous community sponsors. Now in its 7th season, Fourth Fridays continue to bring more than 2,000 residents and visitors to downtown Olathe each month, filling the streets with food trucks, music, entertainment, and great activities for everyone to enjoy!                       At this time, the Olathe Chamber of Commerce is requesting that the City allow alcohol to be purchased and consumed on public property within an enclosed beer garden. Any entrances and exits to the beer garden area will be controlled and ID’s will be checked at these points.  Trash containers will be at all exit points with “NO ALCOHOL PERMITTED PAST THIS POINT” printed on signs. Staff will be trained to ensure no alcoholic beverage cups leave the beer garden area. The Olathe Chamber of Commerce will provide adequate security for the event.                                                                 This event aligns with the City’s priority to revitalize and reinvest in Downtown. This type of community and cultural gathering is vital to attracting people, encouraging social interaction, and building memories in Downtown. Not only do community events and programming foster civic pride, but also activate Downtown Olathe and supports the surrounding small businesses.    Pursuant to state law, the City may issue a temporary permit to allow alcohol to be possessed and consumed on public property, including streets and sidewalks, if the City closes the streets to vehicle traffic.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The resolution to approve this permit is Attachment A. The map of the beer garden area where liquor will be allowed (bordered in red) is Exhibit A. The request by the Olathe Chamber of Commerce, which is required by statute K.S.A. 41-2645(e)(1), is Attachment B. Approval of this resolution is the first step required to allow alcohol to be sold at the event.  Individual liquor license holders are still required to obtain state licenses, in addition to this City license. The resolution also requires that attendees comply with all alcohol laws of the City and State..
