- A catering authorization shall not be issued for premises which have previously been denied a license by reason of the proximity of consideration points or conflict with a valid zoning ordinance unless a written waiver, executed by the person in charge of each such consideration point, is submitted or, in the case of conflict with a zoning ordinance, executed by the legal representative of the community involved.
- No caterer’s authorization shall be issued in an area where the department would not authorize a license because of proximity to a university, State college, veterans home or other institution operated by the State or Federal Government, unless the privileges of the caterer’s permit are to be exercised in connection with the serving of bona fide meals, and the exercise of the privileges will not otherwise be contrary to public welfare and morals.
- A catering authorization shall not be issued for use at any one premises for more than 24 36 events in one calendar year, except when the department determines additional events may be catered to satisfy substantial public demand.
