Rum Bay's Liquor Licence Renewed

The Mesa County Commissioners officially renewed Rum Bay's liquor license today - but it comes with stiff stipulations.

The license was approved this morning at the Commissioner's meeting. To get it renewed the bar had to agree to have its surveillance system updated, perform criminal background checks on employees, and show proof that they've trained employees to serve alcohol responsibly and deal with unruly customers.

If at anytime, the commission learns Rum Bay is not following the rules, they can call a special hearing and revoke their license.

The owner of the bar says he doesn't agree with all the stipulations but they are working hard to change their reputation and have a good working relationship with law enforcement and the county
