Washington County liquor officials have decided not to discipline a Sharpsburg restaurant owner in response to nuisance complaints that were filed against the business over the course of the last few months.
In a letter dated Aug. 26, the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, said they would give Benjamin Brown, owner of GeGe's Place at 208 S. Church St., more time to correct problems that were discussed during two liquor board hearings in August.
Some of the complaints that were filed included fighting, loud noise and public urination outside the business late at night.
"Although we have decided not to take any disciplinary action at this time, we hope that you now have a better understanding of the rules you must follow to run a ... licensed establishment," the letter said. "We will be looking for improvement, regarding the matters discussed at the hearing, during the next few months."
