GateHouse News Service is reporting that the Ryanham selectmen voted unanimously last week to revoke the liquor license of Joe T’s Pub on South Street East.
Owner Karen Thomas closed the pub in May 2008. Selectmen Chairwoman Marie Smith told GateHouse that revoking the all-alcoholic beverage license “is long overdue.” Selectman Joseph Pacheco also noted that the vacant building was becoming an eyesore.
“There’s graffiti now on the building, and the license could be put to better use,” he said.
Other businesses in town are apparently waiting in line to apply for the liquor license.
