GLENDALE— City officials this week expressed concern about granting a beer and wine sales permit to a billiard's facility, citing its close proximity to a residential neighborhood.
At a city planning hearing on Wednesday, officials requested the permit application be denied for Billiard's Corner, at 730 South Central Ave., citing the establishment's hours of operation were vague, and that a sign forbidding anyone 18 or younger had not been posted for many months until it was warned amid police concerns, city planner Christopher Baxter testified.
"We don't believe the applicant meets the very threshold that the city sets for [conditional use permits]," Baxter said.
The permit applicant Nicholas Oatway submitted on behalf of the billiard's owner who wanted to sell beer and wine to boost business and the atmosphere, he said. The billiard's operating permit expires June 2013.
