A ruling on the Mulberry Street Tavern's appeal of a liquor board ruling could come June 28 when a hearing on the appeal is scheduled to be heard in Washington County Circuit Court, board attorney John Salvatore said Wednesday.
In December the liquor board, formally known as the County Board of License Commissioners, decided the tavern was responsible for late-night raucous behavior that disturbed neighbors. The board placed the tavern's liquor license on probation for one year, ordered the business closed for 20 days, and fined tavern-owner R. Dennis Hollinger $2,500.
Within days of the ruling, Hollinger appealed the decision to circuit court.
The tavern at 6 N. Mulberry St. was allowed to stay open pending the outcome of the appeal.
A court hearing on the appeal is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on June 28 in the Washington County Courthouse at 95 W. Washington St., Hagerstown, according to court records.
