The City Secretary provides certification on all TABC pre-qualification packets at no charge.
A City issued Alcoholic Beverage Permit is required upon issuance of a TABC permit. Please purchase your City permit no later than 30 days after the issuance of the TABC permit.
Visit the TABC website for information on new permits or for existing permit renewals. TABC is now using an online Alcohol Industry Management System (AIMS) for licenses and permits.
