            1. PUBLIC HEARING LIQUOR LICENSE: Ted opened the Public Hearing to receive input on the application for a renewal of Liquor License for William Palladino. Patrick Hannon spoke in opposition to granting the renewal. He noted that the York County Sheriff’s Department  report of calls to Palladino’s facility for the past year shows larceny/forgery/fraud, intoxicated/incapacitated subject, 3 motor vehicle accidents,  2 calls for  assault in progress, 2 calls for disturbances and other various calls. Hannon said some years ago when a hearing for Big Daddy’s was held, folks said that towns like Acton, Shapleigh and Lebanon should not sell liquor and he now agrees that this is true.  He stated that there were several errors and omissions in Palladino’s application. Hannon enumerated them. (See evidence submitted) Among the errors he noted the  Federal ID number is incorrect, and provided proof that the Secretary of State had notified Palladino that K.B. Restaurant (the name under which Palladino ‘s application was filed) was Administratively Dissolved as of May 16, 2012. Palladino took the stand and explained that relative to the Federal ID is was just a mistake, a reversal of numbers. He said the incorporation of K.B. Restaurant  was in the process of being restored. On a motion by Larissa the hearing was closed.

 

            2. ACTION ON LICENSE: On a motion by Larissa it was voted to postpone action on the renewal of liquor license until Palladino furnished a corrected application.
