Chicago License Appeal Commission
The Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) regulates liquor licenses in the city. If the BACP issues an unfavorable decision on a liquor license (i.e. fines, suspension, revocation, rejection of application or renewal) the business may appeal it for review by the one-member Chicago License Appeal Commission.

The first step toward participating in a public meeting is knowing when and where it is, and getting context on the decisions it’s been making.
The Illinois Attorney General has said that all public bodies subject to the Open Meetings Act must provide an opportunity for members of the public to address public officials at open meetings. Public comment periods offer an avenue for people to support or oppose policy decisions and provide information that might not otherwise be represented in a meeting.

Knowing the time and location of a meeting is one thing, but it doesn’t necessarily make getting there any easier. Varying meeting times and locations can reduce barriers for attendees.
