In order to receive a City of Mission business occupational license and City liquor license, all establishments selling alcoholic liquors either by the package or by the drink must be licensed by the State of Kansas in accordance with the Kansas Liquor Control Act and must provide a copy of that license to the Mission City Clerk when making application for a City-issued alcoholic liquor license. The City license and the State liquor license will run concurrently for a period of two years.
As defined in Mission City Code, alcoholic liquor includes “…alcohol, spirits, wine, beer and every liquid or solid, patented or not, containing alcohol, spirits, wine or beer and capable of being consumed as a beverage by a human being, but shall not include any cereal malt beverage.”

- Package liquor sales are allowed between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, 12:00 noon through 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and are prohibited on specific holidays.
