Establishments interested in getting a beer license in Provo had better make certain no employees - including the owner and manager - have been convicted of certain crimes.
The City Council amended an ordinance at this week's meeting clarifying the conduct that would disqualify an applicant from receiving a class "C" beer license.Such conduct includes assault, battery, mayhem, murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, rape, forcible sodomy, aggravated sexual assault, arson, robbery, burglary or any other offenses involving the use of force or violence against a person.
Prostitution, gambling, giving false information to a police officer, the sale, delivery or transportation of an alcoholic beverage and unlawful possession or use of controlled substances are also included.
However, only convictions or actions occurring within three years prior to the application will disqualify an applicant, the ordinance states.
The ordinance was amended because it was not clear before what felonies or misdemeanors were included.
In other action, the council voted to bring an ordinance imposing criminal liability for bites or injury caused by vicious animals in line with state statute.
The ordinance requires rabies vaccinations for dogs and cats by the time they are four months old.
