Vermont businesses get liquor license extension

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) Liquor licenses are expiring soon but Vermont businesses have an extension.

Businesses will be granted an extension if they fill out an "intent to renew" form to the Vermont Department of Liquor and Lottery.

This allows them to legally operate after their license expires on April 30.

If a business submitted its license renewal application to the town, it will be considered valid once the town notifies the state.
