Tavern open for business

The East End Tavern is back in business after a Washington County judge delayed a 30-day liquor license suspension and a $1,000 fine issued by the Board of License Commissioners of Washington County on Jan. 28.

Circuit Judge John H. McDowell signed a court order on Feb. 3 that delays the suspension and fine on the East Franklin Street establishment until a decision on an appeal is made, according to court documents.

Tavern owner Faye A. Myers appealed the liquor control board's decision on Feb. 2, court documents said.

The three members of the liquor control board voted unanimously to suspend the tavern's liquor license and issue a fine citing "numerous unacceptable activities" that had occurred inside the premises, according to the written decision.

The board based its decision on information from Hagerstown Police and the Narcotics Task Force that there had been allegations of drug activity going on inside the bar, said Hagerstown Police Capt. Robert Hart.

Illegal drugs were bought inside the business by members of the Narcotics Task Force, Hart said.
