The Township Council at its last meeting voted to sell one of the township’s plenary retail consumption liquor licenses and to purchase a piece of heavy machinery.

Bids for the liquor license, which start at $250,000, will be accepted until Dec. 6.

The licenses allow for the sale and consumption of alcohol on the licensee’s premises.

The number of plenary retail consumption liquor licenses available to a town is dependent upon the town’s population, as determined by the latest federal Census. The township has five licenses to sell.

All qualified bidders will be announced at noon on Dec. 13 in the Township Clerk’s office. The bids will be opened at noon on Dec. 20, and a resolution accepting the highest bid or rejecting all bids will be considered by the council at its Jan. 9, 2018 meeting.

In a memo to Township Manager Robert Vornlocker, Township Clerk Ann Marie McCarthy said that she has received inquiries about the license from “several buyers.”

The council also at its Nov. 13 meeting approved the purchase of a Towable Oil-Jacketed Hot Pour Crack Sealer Melter, which is used to place tar in potholes.

The machine is being purchased for $54,448.06 from Crafco, Inc. of Chandler, Az.
