Bar quota hearing

Bellevue Council will hold a public hearing on Feb. 12 to receive comments on whether council should allow the borough's state quota of bars to increase.

Bellevue is permitted to have two “R” or retail liquor licenses without input from the borough. Those licenses already are in place in the borough. A new restaurant scheduled to open at 407 Lincoln Avenue, “202 Hometown Tacos,” also wants to serve alcoholic beverages, and has asked council to approve a resolution allowing them to apply to the state Liquor Control Board (LCB) for a license.

The hearing will begin at 6 p.m., prior to the pre-council meeting, with consideration of the resolution set for the regular council meeting on Feb. 25.
