Fargo's Liquor Control Board wants some standards in place before creating more off-sale liquor licenses.

Members voted unanimously Wednesday to resurrect a smaller version of the Liquor Control Task Force that conducted an exhaustive review of the city's complicated liquor laws in 2003.

In doing so, they delayed action on Fargo businessman André Arneson's request for a Class B off-sale liquor license to open a shop in the Osgood Farms neighborhood. It would be the first liquor store in that area of Fargo.

The city has capped the number of Class B licenses at 12, and all of them are currently being used.
