North Adams Commission Keeps Key West Limits; Tables Fiesta Permit

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The restrictions placed on Key West Lounge after a shooting outside the bar in February will remain in place at least until next week. 
The License Commission on Tuesday held a three-month review of the conditions put in place on March 8: the bar had to close by 1 a.m. and had to have a trained doorman on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. 
The commission, with members Rosemari Dickinson and Peter Breen in attendance, agreed to continue the earlier hours until Dec. 31 with a review to occur at that time. But they split on whether to continue making a doorman a requirement of the license and tabled any changes until the third member of the commission, Michael Goodson, could weigh in and break the tie.
A tentative date of Tuesday, July 5, was set.
