LET­TER TO THE EDITOR

Off-li­cences not for new premises

South Waikato News - - YEAR IN REVIEW -

In re­sponse to Colin Bri­dle’s con­cerns re­gard­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion for three off-li­cences in Toko­roa by Mokosoi Hold­ings Ltd be­ing for Su­per Liquor Toko­roa, Bot­tle­zone Ware­house and Bot­tle­zone Ex­press.

I would like to point out the fol­low­ing, these are three ex­ist­ing premises that have held off-li­cences for years. Mokosoi Hold­ings pur­chased these premises on Novem­ber 16, 2011.

Af­ter con­sul­ta­tion with the South Waikato District Coun­cil Li­cens­ing Agency where ad­vice on the tim­ing of the ad­ver­tise­ments was sorted and com­plied with, the ad­ver­tise­ments were placed.

The new hours ap­plied for are less then the ex­ist­ing hours in place.

It is the in­ten­tion of Mokosoi Hold­ings Ltd to oper­ate these three li­cences in a pro­fes­sional man­ner abid­ing by all the re­quire­ments of the Sale of Liquor Act.

Mokosoi Hold­ings Ltd is well aware of its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to the whole com­mu­nity and recog­nises the need to cater for the silent ma­jor­ity that don’t let al­co­hol-re­lated vi­o­lence and harm dom­i­nate their lives as well as to help ed­u­cate and sup­port those that do.
