The Fraser River Lodge has successfully passed its trial year with extended hours, and has won approval from council to continue operating as such.
The lodge, which hosts several weddings and other large private parties throughout the year, applied to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch over a year ago to extend their food primary liquor license hours from 12 a.m. to 1 a.m., within the food services and lounge area.
Council gave approval to the request through the board, on the provision that is was granted for one year only. The board approved that provision. “No Parking” signs also had to be placed on one side of the road to avoid congestion.
The year has passed without issue, and the signs have been put in place.
No neighbours have written to object the application, and one neighbour wrote in favour of it. Council passed the decision unanimously.
