2022 Legislative Initiatives
On Saturday, December 4, 2021, Administrator, Dawn Shugars, presented the Board's 2022 Legislative packet to the Delegation.  For a summary of the initiatives click HERE.

Census Data Update
On December 4, 2021, Administrator, Dawn Shugars addressed the Census language in State Law with the Frederick County Delegation.  It was brought to the Board's attention that an unintentional error occurred in the language during conversion to the Alcohol Beverages Article. Once the Delegation brings this to the General Assembly later in 2022, and if licenses become available, the Board will announce a fair and transparent process.  The available licenses will be advertised in the Frederick News Post, and the process will be posted to this website.

Frederick County Liquor Board office has moved to 1501 Tilco Drive, Suite C, Frederick, MD 21704. If you have an immediate need, please call the office, 301-600-2984.
