License gets conditional OK
During a hearing Wednesday, the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County conditionally approved the transfer of a Hagerstown tavern's liquor license to the business' new owner.
Lauren's Tavern's liquor license was transferred to Joseph Arias, who said he wants to eventually open a Tex-Mex restaurant there.
The business is at 204 E. Franklin St.
The transfer won't become official, however, until Arias provides the commissioners with certificates of inspection from the Hagerstown Fire Department and Washington County Department of Health, said Robert L. Everhart, commission chairman.
In addition, Arias must show a state tax certificate before the transfer is granted, Everhart said.
Beer approved for event
Officials from Clear Spring Little League will hold a turkey-dinner fundraiser from 6 p.m. to midnight Oct. 12 at the Red Men Pavilion in Williamsport.
On Tuesday, the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County approved the sale of beer at the event.
