The Union Village Board met in special session on October 18, 2012 and was called to order at 8:39pm to approve the Union Bar’s application for a Class C liquor license. The Open Meeting Laws were displayed for public reference.  On roll call:  Hardbarger – Aye, Vidlak – Aye, Chipman – Aye.

The Board received correspondence from Logan Clark, neighbor to 108 Main St., future location of The Union Bar.  Mr. Clark requests that the application for a liquor license be denied due to his opinion on the unsafe condition of the building at 108 Main St..  Mr. Clark also complained that there was trespassing on his property while the last bar was in operation.  The Board discussed Mr. Clark’s concerns and felt that it was necessary for the Village to have a business in operation at that location. Mr. Logan purchased the property knowing he was located next to an operational bar and the fire marshall’s inspector will need to approve The Union Bar’s license as well.  Chipman motioned to approve Gregg and Marcia Thumann’s request for a class C liquor license to operate The Union Bar located at 108 Main St.  2nd by Vidlak.  Trustee votes are as follows:  Hardbarger– Aye, Vidlak- Aye, Chipman – Aye.  Motion approved.

Vidlak motioned to adjourn at 8:44pm.  2nd by Chipman.  Trustee votes are as follows:  Hardbarger– Aye, Vidlak- Aye, Chipman – Aye.  Motion approved.  

The next regular meeting is scheduled for November 14, 2012, 7pm at the ALA Hall.  The Meeting Notice and Agenda will be posted for the public at the Village Office, the Union Branch of the Nehawka Bank, and the Union Post Office.

Dwain Hardbarger, Jr. Chairman
