That Section 23-903, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 20 amended to read as follows: 21 23-903. LICENSE TO RETAIL LIQUOR. (1) The director of the department of 22 law enforcement is hereby empowered, authorized, and directed to issue 23 licenses to qualified applicants, as herein provided, whereby the licensee 24 shall be authorized and permitted to sell liquor by the drink at retail and, 25 upon the issuance of such license, the licensee therein named shall be autho- 26 rized to sell liquor at retail by the drink, but only in accordance with the 27 rules promulgated by the director and the provisions of this chapter. 28 (2) No license shall be issued for the sale of liquor on any premises29 outside the incorporated limits of any city except as provided in this chapter30 and tThe number of licenses soissued for any city shall not exceed one (1) 31 license for each one thousand five hundred (1,500) of population of said city 32 or fraction thereof, as established in the last preceding census, or any sub- 33 sequent special census conducted by the United States bureau of the census or 34 by an estimate that is statistically valid including adding the number of new 35 residential utility connections or including adding the population of areas 36 annexed into the city after the last census or special census was conducted, 37 except that upon proper application thereof not more than two (2) licenses may 38 be issued for each incorporated city with a population of one thousand five 39 hundred (1,500) or less, unless the retail licensing of liquor by the drink 40 has been previously disapproved under the provisions of sections 23-917, 41 23-918, 23-919, 23-920 and 23-921, Idaho Code; provided, however, that any 42 license heretofore issued may be renewed from year to year without regard to 43 the population or status of the city for which such license is issued. Any 2 1 license issued and which has remained in effect at its location for a consecu- 2 tive period of ten (10) years or more shall be deemed to have been validly 3 issued and may be renewed from year to year provided, however, that the appli- 4 cant for the renewal of such license is not otherwise disqualified for licen- 5 sure pursuant to section 23-910, Idaho Code, and, if the premises required 6 special characteristics for original licensure, other than being either within 7 or without the incorporated limits of a city, that said premises continue to 8 have such special characteristics at the time of the application for renewal. 9 (3) If permitted by county ordinance or limited in number by county ordi- 10 nance, nothing in this chapter shall prohibit the issuance of licenses to 11 counties based on the population of the unincorporated areas of the county. 12 Provided however, such licenses shall only be issued to the owner, operator or 13 lessee of an establishment which meets the definition of a restaurant as pro- 14 vided in section 23-942, Idaho Code. Initially, on July 1, 2000, each county 15 shall be granted two (2) licenses, regardless of population. Counties with a 16 population of nine thousand (9,000) to twelve thousand (12,000) shall be 17 granted three (3) licenses, and counties of twelve thousand (12,000) or more 18 population shall be granted four (4) licenses. Each year thereafter, addi- 19 tional licenses shall be granted for annual growth of one (1) license for each 20 three thousand (3,000) of population of the unincorporated areas of the 21 county. The basis upon which respective populations of the unincorporated 22 areas of each county shall be determined is the last preceding census, or any 23 subsequent special census conducted by the United States bureau of the census, 24 or by an estimate that is statistically valid including adding the number of 25 new residential utility connections, unless a direct enumeration of the inhab- 26 itants thereof be made by the state of Idaho, in which case such later direct 27 enumeration shall constitute such basis. Counties shall sell licenses at auc- 28 tion to the highest bidder who meets the qualifications for licensure pursuant 29 to this chapter, and shall remit fifty percent (50%) of the proceeds from each 30 license sold to the director for deposit to the state liquor fund created in 31 section 23-401, Idaho Code. Annual county license fees shall be imposed and 32 collected as provided in section 23-916, Idaho Code. Such county licenses 33 shall not be transferable to any city in the county or any city in any other 34 county, nor be transferable from one (1) county to another, but may be trans- 35 ferred within the unincorporated areas of the county in which they were 36 issued. 37 (4) Nothing herein contained shall prohibit the issuance of a license to 38 the owner, operator, or lessee of an actual, bona fide golf course whether 39 located within or without the limits of any city, or located on premises also 40 operated as a winery, or ski resort, or to the lessee of any premises situate 41 thereon, no part of which ski resort or the premises thereon is situate within 42 the incorporated limits of any city.

The course must be planted in grass except 50 that it may provide artificial tee mats. Where any such golf course is owned 51 or leased by an association of members and is used or enjoyed by such members, 52 or their guests, none of the disqualifications contained in section 23-910, 53 Idaho Code, shall apply to such association as a licensee where such disquali- 54 fications, or any of them, would apply only to a member of such association 55 where such member has no interest therein except as a member thereof. 3 1 (5) Also for the purpose of this section a ski resort shall comprise real 2 property of not less than ten (10) acres in size, exclusive of the terrain 3 used for skiing and upon which the owner, operator, or lessee of the ski 4 resort has made available himself, or through others, including, but not lim- 5 ited to, the owners of condominiums, permanent bona fide overnight accommoda- 6 tions available to the general public for one hundred (100) persons or more, 7 and which real property is contiguous to or located within the area in which 8 skiing occurs, and which real property is regularly operated as a ski resort 9 in the winter time, and where the owner, operator, or lessee of the ski resort 10 is also the owner, operator, or lessee of the area served by a bona fide chair 11 ski lift facility or facilities. Alternatively, for the purpose of this sec- 12 tion a ski resort may also be defined as a downhill ski area, open to the pub- 13 lic, comprising real property of not less than two hundred fifty (250) 14 skiable acres, operating two (2) or more chair lifts with a vertical lift of 15 one thousand (1,000) feet or more, and capable of transporting a minimum of 16 one thousand eight hundred (1,800) skiers per hour.

Not more than one (1) license shall be issued on any 44 airport. 45 (8) Nothing herein contained shall prohibit the issuance of one (1) club 46 license to a club as defined in section 23-902, Idaho Code.

A club 51 license issued pursuant to the provisions of this section is not transferable 52 and may not be sold. Any club license issued pursuant to the provisions of 53 this section will revert to the director when, in his judgment, the licensee 54 ceases to operate as a bona fide club as defined in section 23-902, Idaho 55 Code. No club may hold a liquor license and a club license simultaneously. A 4 1 club which on July 1, 1983, holds a liquor license, may continue to possess 2 that license. Any club which possesses a liquor license on January 1, 1983, or 3 thereafter, and then sells that liquor license, may not obtain a club license, 4 and the director shall not issue a club license to that club for a period of 5 five (5) years following such sale.
