Napa Wine Businesses Destroyed By Recent Quake May Relocate Operations

On September 2, 2014, in a letter to President Obama, Governor Brown requested a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration for the Napa-American Canyon area, which is recovering from a 6.0 earthquake that occurred on August 24th, 2014.  President Obama issued this declaration 3 days ago on September 11, 2014 thereby freeing up federal funding for local recovery efforts.

Governor Brown also issued an Executive Order B-24-14 to California State Agencies, aimed at reducing costs and red tape, particularly in association with replacing certain government documents/certificates that were lost in the quake. Other efforts to facilitate local community recovery actions included language directed to the CA Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), shown below. Link to Governor's Executive Order 

"The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control shall have the discretion to waive the 500 foot limitation and 180-day time period in section 24081 of the Business and Professions Code for any businesses that have been forced to relocate as a result of the earthquake. The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control shall further have the discretion to waive transfer fees beyond the time limitations set forth in Business and Professions Code sections 24081 and 24082."

According the the regulations referenced in the sections above, licensees whose licensed premises have been destroyed as a result of a fire or any "Act of God", may carry on his/her business for a temporary period of time (180 days for on-sale; 6 months for off-sale) at an nearby location (within 500 feet) while the premises are being repaired or rebuilt. 

More information to follow.  Licensees may contact the CA ABC for further details:
