Even though the Plymouth City Commission made a decision on their liquor moratorium, the issue of liquor licenses in the city is still making headlines. The latest debate is whether to allow the Penn Grill and Bar, which has had many alcohol-related problems recently, to continue to hold a liquor license.
The Plymouth police department says that the Penn Grill and Bar is responsible for many drunken driver cases, along with assault and battery, fights and public urination occurring around the restaurant.
The Plymouth City Commission’s Liquor License Review Committee was about to make an attempt to revoke the restaurant’s license, but failed to do so in time. Due to state laws, paperwork to oppose a liquor license renewal must be filed 30 days before its scheduled approval date. In other words, the Penn Grill and Bar already has already had its liquor license renewed.
However, the city can still revoke the license, but will now have request the state liquor board to become involved, which will take more time.
