Mayor Jimmy Alexander opened the meeting at 6:30 p.m. Members present were Mayor Alexander, Aldermen Tommy Dugger, Larry Felts, Jason Patrick and Brian Snyder. Staff present: Counsel Robert Notestine and Recorder Kali Mogul. There were 50 citizens present.
Alderman Patrick led the Pledge of Allegiance.
Mr. Keith Lamb and Mr. George “Lou” Leiker represented Nolen’s Place, 7240 Nolensville Road, seeking an on-premises beer consumption permit.
Mayor Alexander gave a brief introduction, explaining the need for a new beer permit, including a change of ownership and failure to meet the minimum 65% food sales requirement per the Town of Nolensville’s Municipal Code.
Mr. Lamb summarized some changes that would be made to help meet the 65% requirement, including keeping the kitchen open later and offering a lunch menu. He said the management would take as many steps necessary to meet the requirements of the Ordinance.
There was a lengthy discussion with the applicants about the format for the restaurant, the process and requirements for an on-premises beer permit and information stated on the permit application form. Item #16 on the beer permit should be amended—the previous beer permit holder should be listed as Nolen’s Place.
After continued dialogue, Mayor Alexander moved to approve the beer permit for Nolen’s Place, seconded by Alderman Patrick. Following additional discussion about levying a fine for the illegal sale of beer for two years, a vote was taken, and the beer permit was approved unanimously.
Mayor Alexander thanked the audience and adjourned the meeting at 7:20 p.m.
