CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A proposed cafe at 103 S. Lawrence St. that would offer beer, sandwiches and video lottery machines raised concerns at a Charles Town City Council meeting Monday night.
Council member Geraldine Willingham objected to the appearance of the proposed cafe, saying Charles Town is a historic town and "tinted windows don't belong here."
Timothy Hostler, who is involved in the project, told council members there would only be blinds on the windows.
The council forwarded comments made at Monday's meeting to the West Virginia Beverage Control Administration, which must decide whether to grant a license for the cafe to serve beer.
If the license is granted, council members must decide whether to issue a special exception use in a commercial zone for the cafe, City Clerk Joe Cosentini said.
