Bar owner no-show at suspension hearing

The Liquor Control Review Board waited. And waited.

“I’ve become a clock-watcher,” Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl quipped.


The Liquor Control Review Board waited. And waited.

“I’ve become a clock-watcher,” Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl quipped.

The board met at 11:30 a.m. today to consider suspending the liquor license of Bill’s Blues, a local bar, after it allegedly served alcohol to minors and failed to file liquor tax returns.

But after fifteen minutes, owner Bill Gilmore hadn’t shown up to defend his business. The board called him, but he did not answer.

The board plans to reschedule the meeting. If Gilmore fails to show again, the board can suspend the bar’s license without his presence.
