The liquor license of the Mansfield Veterans of Foreign Wars post was suspended for seven days after it was charged with serving alcohol to minors during a police undercover operation. Shortly before their Aug. 28 hearing, selectmen discovered it was the post’s second offense within three years. “We take alcohol very seriously in our town,” said Selectman Douglas Annino. Another restaurant, Chipotle Mexican Grill, has been unable to serve alcohol since the hearing, where a representative acknowledged the business has no manager of record, which is required by state law, said Town Manager William R. Ross. Chipotle was given a letter of reprimand and a manager has to be approved before it can sell beer and wine, Ross said. Geno’s Restaurant and Lounge was issued a letter of reprimand after the owner acknowledged its first violation in 32 years in town. A hearing for Casey O’Conor’s Pub was put on hold, since the liquor license has been seized by the state for failing to pay back taxes. At an earlier hearing last month, four other businesses received letters of reprimand in connection with the police operations in June.
