Two Businesses Seek Liquor Permits
City has no problem with one, but objects to the other
Two Strongsville businesses are applying for permits to sell carryout liquor.
City Council on Monday had no objection to Strongsville Seafood's request, but made a conditional objection to the service station's permit.
Building Commissioner Tony Biondillo reported Gas N Food is in violation of some of the city's building regulations.
Once those are corrected, the city will lift its objection to the liquor permit, Council President Mike Daymut said.
The city routinely inspects businesses applying for liquor permits, and also asks the police and fire departments to review the applications. Strongsville does not issue permits, but can file an objection with the state if officials here have a problem with the establishment selling alcohol.
Recently, council objected to liquor permits for Big Lots because of building code violations, and for Blue Banyon, a proposed wine bar on Pearl Road, because plans for the business had not yet been submitted.
