WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It will be a not-so-happy New Year at 11 Williamstown restaurants if the owners and managers fail to meet a Wednesday, Nov. 27, deadline to renew their common victualler and liquor licenses.
 
Town Manager Peter Fohlin reported at Monday's Select Board meeting that nearly a dozen current license-holders had so far failed to apply for renewals. Massachusetts law requires they do so by the last day of the month prior to the consideration of the renewal request by the Select Board.
 
The board will consider those renewal requests at its Dec. 9 meeting — if it has any requests before it.
 
"If the licenses are not renewed at the Selectmen's December meeting, we'll pick up the licenses on Dec. 31 at midnight," Fohlin said. "This is an important asset that I think businesses would pay more attention to."
 
Town offices are closed on Thursday and Friday this week for Thanksgiving. That leaves just Tuesday and Wednesday for businesses to submit their applications.
 
Fohlin encouraged business owners to take care of submitting the application and customers to check with their favorite establishments to make sure they have.
 
At Monday's meeting, the Selectmen OK'd renewals for the following businesses:
 
Berkshire Restaurant Group (Purple Pub and Spring Street Pizzeria), Richmore Inc. ('6 House Pub), Ecusal Inc. (Coyote Flaco), LMKM (Moonlight Diner & Grille), Pappa Charlie's Deli, Taewa Inc. (Thai Garden), Spice Root, RMR Enterprises (Desperados), O'Connell's Oil Associates, Williams College (Faculty/Alumni House, The Log, '82 Grill), Hops & Vines, Wild Oats Cooperative, Dunkin Donuts, Taconic Williamstown Corp. (Williams Inn), Water Street Ventures (Water Street Grill), Happy Star (Chopsticks) and West Package Store Inc. (West's Wine & Spirits).
 
In other holiday/deadline related business, the last day to register to vote at the Dec. 10 special town meeting (for those not already registered) is Friday, Nov. 29. As mentioned, Town Hall is closed that day, but registration forms will be available in the police station from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. for those who cannot register either Tuesday or Wednesday.
