Edina, Minn., March 17, 2023 – Edina Liquor General Manager Josh Furbish will continue the City of Edina’s “Town Talks” with a discussion about municipal liquor operations. The event will be held online 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 22.
The City of Edina has operated a municipal off-sale liquor store since residents voted for such operations in 1948. Seventy-five years later, there are three Edina Liquor locations and the enterprise offers online sales with local delivery. Municipal liquor operations result in a profit of nearly $1 million annually, offsetting the cost of other Parks & Recreation operations.
During the Town Talk, Furbish will discuss milestones and achievements made in the past six years and review Edina Liquor’s 2022 operations. Hosted by City Manager Scott Neal, the Town Talk will be broadcast live on Edina TV and available for online viewing on Facebook Live and through the City’s website. Those who would like to ask a question from home can call 866-571-0905 with Conference PIN 6909773#. Press *1 on your telephone keypad when you are ready to ask a question during that part of the event. An operator will mute your line and place you into a queue until it is your turn to speak.
The video and materials for the Town Talk will be available on BetterTogetherEdina.org for a week following the presentation. Additional questions and comments may be posted there for staff members after the Town Talk.
The Town Talk will be shown on Edina TV (Comcast Channels 813 and 16) 8:30 p.m. Mondays, 4:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Tuesdays, 10 p.m. Wednesdays and 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursdays through April 18.
