City councilors will hold public hearings on several licensing requests at their meeting on Thursday. Newbury Comics, which moved to Northshore Mall last fall, is seeking a junk dealer’s license for its space in the mall. The store had a junk dealer’s license at its previous location at 240 Andover St., but has yet to obtain one for its present site, according to city clerk Timothy Spanos. He said the license is needed because the store deals in second-hand items. In other requests, Joseph J. Miller is seeking a transfer from Foster Street Motors of a Class II auto dealer’s license to operate a used-car business at 92 Foster St. Spanos said that Miller owns the property and plans to take over operation of Foster Street Motors, now located on the site. Luke Johnson is seeking a transfer of the Class II auto dealer’s license currently held by Leonard Pappas at 3 Rear Birney St. Johnson is purchasing the business at that location, Peabody Auto Clinic, according to Spanos. Matthew Mondello is seeking a transfer from Gilberto Aleixo of a Class II auto dealer’s license at 128 Newbury St. (Route 1 south). Mondello is purchasing the business at that location, Newbury Street Auto Sales, Spanos said.
