Selectmen to seek more alcohol licenses

Continue reading below

With the potential for several new restaurants and no available alcohol licenses available, selectmen have begun the process of asking the state for additional licenses. “I think there’s at least a consensus to move it forward to Town Meeting,” said Town Manager William R. Ross. In an interview, Ross said that a few restaurants have asked about opening in town, only to find that the town’s roughly 30 licenses are all taken. Ross said that decisions still need to be made on the number of additional licenses, and whether to restrict them to certain areas within town. The town must request additional licenses from the state and gain Town Meeting approval to have a home rule petition go before the Legislature, Ross said.
