Village board discusses conditional liquor application

The March 16 Village of Somerset Board meeting was very efficient.

At 15 minutes, Pam Donohoe, village clerk, commented that it was the shortest official board meeting that she could remember.

Although the meeting was brief, the trustees discussed granting Kindustries LLC, owner of the new Bootlegger's Bar at 235 Main St., a liquor license.

Greg Sayers, public safety chairman, said that though they were able to approve changing the liquor agent from the previous MacDaddy's occupant to new owner Chad Schmitt, they would not be able to immediately grant the liquor license.

"If we don't get it on paper from MacDaddy's, then we need to get something in writing that they surrender their license," said Terry Dunst, village attorney.

The new owners said they would contact the former owners.

Ryan Sicard, public works chairman, said the next public informational meeting regarding the storm water utility will be Wednesday, April 21, at 6 p.m.

He also said that he will take the sewer hook-up fees back to the committee for review.

The Village of Somerset board meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Village Hall. The public is welcome to attend.
