Beer Board, Town Hall
Date: May 24, 2007, Time 1:00 p.m.
The Nolensville Beer Board met on Thursday, May 24, 2007, at 1:00 p.m. at Town Hall. Mayor Beth Lothers, Aldermen Jimmy Alexander, Tommy Dugger, Ken Thomas were in attendance. Alderman Joe Curtsinger was absent. Staff present was Counsel Robert Notestine and Recorder Cindy Lancaster. There were no citizens present other than the applicant.
An off-premise beer permit application was submitted by Mr. Se Won Lee for 7207 Nolensville Road, which currently is the Two Way Stop Market. The name will remain the same, although ownership will change.
Alderman Dugger inquired to obtaining a copy of the applicants social security card. It was noted that he could submit the number. Mr. Lee submitted his social security number to Mayor Lothers and this was given to Recorder Lancaster.
Counsel Notestine stated that it is his understanding that he must get a permit prior to obtaining ownership. Mr. Lee stated that the closing date for the sale of the property would be next Thursday. Counsel Notestine stated that the town does not normally issue beer license unless it is at the owners request. He noted that this statement is for the boards information and it could be approved contingent upon purchasing the establishment at this location.
Mayor Lothers asked Counsel for the proper method of approval. Counsel stated that the motion for approval could be that the permit cannot be issued until proof of acquiring ownership of the business within thirty days.
Alderman Dugger noted that in past the town has requested that alcohol neon signs be limited as much as possible.
It was noted that the permit was marked for an on premise request. Mr. Lee said that is an error and should be an off premise request. Mr. Lee corrected and initialed his application.
Town Recorder Lancaster stated that in speaking with Mr. Trevon Townsend, he is aware that he must surrender his beer permit within fifteen days after the transfer of ownership. Mr. Townsend stated that he has agreed to stay at the store during the 15 day period, although no longer.
Alderman Dugger made a motion to approve Mr. Lee’s off-premise permit with condition of final transfer and sale of property. At that time the current owners will relinquish their license within the 15 day period of transfer of ownership, Alderman Alexander seconded. This was approved unanimously.
Meeting adjourned at 1:21.
