On December 6, 2005, the City Council adopted amendments to San José Municipal Code Title 6 and San José Municipal Code Title 20 to regulate the sale of alcoholic beverages that are taken off the premises. An inspection program was created to ensure that retailers maintain their businesses in a responsible manner that meets San José Municipal Code (SJMC) requirements and does not negatively impact neighborhoods.
Permits & Inspections
Retailers can prepare for inspections by reviewing the Off-Sale Alcohol Inspection Guide.
