Patrick Fisher, The New Prague Times

The New Prague City Council approved at its Monday, Aug. 20, meeting a 3.2 percent off-sale malt liquor license for the new Kwik Trip in New Prague.

The city received an application from the Kwik Trip at 100 Fourth Ave. NW, which is currently under construction. It is proposed that operation of the liquor license at the business will begin on or after Monday, Sept. 10, with the license period to run from that date and expire on March 31, 2019.

City Administrator Mike Johnson informed the council that the applicant had paid all license fees and had provided certificate of insurance for general liability, workers compensation and liquor liability insurance. Also Police Chief Jim Gareis conducted a background check, found nothing to disqualify the applicant and recommended the granting of the license.

A public hearing was required to be held during the August 20 meeting, which received no comments. The Kwik Trip store manager Sydney Okoneski was present at the meeting and she told the council that everything was going well and they expect to be open on time. The council approved the license 4-0. Council member Dave Bruzek was absent.

Parking lot lease with Miller Milling Company

The council also approved a three year parking lot lease with Miller Milling Company, LLC. The lease is an extension of a previous one, with the new one beginning on September 1, 2018 and lasting until August 31, 2021. The area is for 2.46 acres of an unpaved section located at 302 Second St. NW, behind FlipSide Pub & Grill. Miller Milling Company owns the mill at 100 Second Ave. SW and has vehicles use the area for parking. The lease is for a rate of $2,400 a month, which is an increase of $200 from the previous lease. Johnson said they will be working with Miller Milling Company on the 2020 Main Street project about access to the site. Council member Kay Wilcox asked if dust control in the parking lot is a problem. Johnson said it wasn’t.
