PLAINFIELD, NJ - The Plainfield Alcoholic Beverage Control Board took disciplinary action at its meeting on Tuesday, suspending three liquor establishments for infractions. It is the first time the board has taken such action since it was created by the city council in 2017.
Jersey Liquors, operating a bar at 440 Watchung Avenue, will have its license suspended for one day during the month of September.
Tequila Bar, operating a bar at 315 East Fifth Street, will have its license suspended for five consecutive days during September. Anchor Bar, operating at 1217 W Front Street, is also facing a five day suspension.
In other business, a resolution recommending a refund of $10,000 for renewal fees for four terms to Liliana De Leon was authorized, and is a lien attached to the license. At its July 17 meeting the ABC Board had denied an application from De Leon, who was seeking approval for a person-to-person license transfer, after she was deemed unqualified by the Plainfield Police Division.
The renewal of Pueblo Viejo's license was also authorized on Tuesday evening.
The ABC Board is made up of three commissioners: Chairman David Graves, Jim Perry, and Louise Colodne.
