City Notes: Coasters getting a beer garden

Notes from Monday night's committee meetings ...

COASTERS: Coasters Pub, 1301 N. Main St., is planning to build an outdoor beer garden behind the bar along Main St. Owner Michael Kurhajec appeared before the Public Safety and Licensing Committee to change the bar's "premises description." The 23x32-foot patio passed unanimously.

MAGNOLIA ROOM: Kristina Christensen, owner of The Pink Magnolia, 240B Main St., had the liquor license for the former Granger Lounge to her name. Christensen replaces Robb Granger as holder of the liquor license. Granger was removed from the business. The business is now named "Magnolias on Main" with "The Pink Magnolia" as the restaurant inside.

TOBACCO VIOLATIONS: The following businesses were called in for "non-compliance of tobacco sales":
  • Quik Market, 4303 Sixteenth Street
  • Taylor Mart, 1813 Taylor Avenue
  • Speedway, 4620 Washington Avenue
CLAIM: If a city tree falls on your car, don't expect the city to pay for it. The Finance and Personnel Committee rejected three claims Monday night involving trees or tree branches that fell on cars during a storm on June 18. In all three cases Assistant City Attorney Nicole Loop said there was no evidence that the trees were in poor health or uncared for. The claims were for $665, $1,036 and $1,836.61.
