The five citizen
commissioners set policy for the OLCC. They meet monthly for one or two days
to make decisions.
Commissioners are appointed by the governor to four-year terms, subject to
senate confirmation, each representing a state congressional district, with one
from the food and beverage industry. Board members may re-apply for a second
term. Commissioners appoint the agency's executive director, who serves as the
secretary of the commission and custodian of commission records.
The authorities of the
Commission are set out in 471.730 some of which have been delegated to the
Executive Director. The authorities include setting agency policy, adopting administrative rules,
approving liquor and marijuana licenses, approving license denials, approving
Final Orders, ratifying settlement agreements, appointing liquor agents, confirming
products in warehouse, setting the price formula, including any surcharges.
