As you know, some areas have recognized a moritorium on new liquor licenses. You may have to get the previous license reinstated or renewed, or be out of luck. If you made the liquir license a condition of your purchase of the business, you may want to get the seller involved in getting the license back. If you did not make the license a condition of the purchase, then you may have to change the business to a non-liquor endeavor, or appease the chruch/school. There was not sufficeint facts here to see what that might entail.

Good luck
