A-Mart won't be selling alcohol for three days ... after the holidays.
The Licensing Board sanctioned the North Street package store with the suspension relating back to an incident in May. In July, the board had punished A-Mart with a three-day suspension for the incident in which an intoxicated person was sold more alcohol at the store.
Police are asking the Licensing Board to shut down Lach's Lounge.
Lach's Lounge is currently shut down until mid-November when it will have a hearing before the Licensing Board after a police investigation into a shooting and alleged drug dealing. The latest pile onto a lengthy history of instances at the bar and for that, Police have asked for the liquor license to be revoked.
Methuselah Bar and Lounge will be closed for the next five days after the Licensing Board issued a suspension Monday afternoon.
The board issued the suspension after the Police Department found about double the amount of people inside the bar than its occupancy.
The board decided to authorize Town Manager Jason Hoch to send a letter to the businesses that failed to notify them of the board's concern and its intention to take action if one of the establishments is found in violation again in the next 12 months.
Selling alcohol to an already intoxicated individual is against the law and, while the man was walking and not driving, the Licensing Board felt it posed a hazard. Licensing Board member Richard Stockwell said the severely intoxicated man could have easily been struck by a vehicle on that end of North Street.
