A former selectman was granted the town’s one remaining all-alcohol liquor license on Wednesday, pending town counsel review, as reported by iberkshires.com.
Donald Sommers, who is opening Haflinger House in the former Harrington’s Restaurant on Commercial Street, was the only application the town received after four separate businesses inquired about the license.
The board approved granting the license to Sommers pending attorney review of the application. The town wants to make sure the application will also be accepted by the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission.
The application was delayed somewhat when Town Counsel Edmund St. John III asked for additional information. Sommers has submitted the information but St. John had not yet to reviewed it, according to iberkshires.com
