The board received a letter from four of the tavem owners in Hunt¬ ley objectinb to the issuing of a class D liquor license to s pack¬ age l^or store m the Vflldge". Tliey said Oiat this rtore would be de- tramental. No action was taken by tre board on this request No class D liquor licsense has been issued in the village of Huntley however the board does have an application for such a license but has not taken any action at this time. The letter read as follows: Huntley, Illinois January 26,1971 Village Board Village of Huntley Huntley, Illinois Gentlemen: We, the tavern owners of Huntley strongly object to, and deeply resent that portion of the amended Liquor Control Ordinance which provides for possible issuance of a Class "D" license (retail package liquor store, or liquor department in a drug store on a grocery store). Referral to the Village Board minutes of several years ago will indicate that the Board agreed, in view of the existing seven (7) li¬ censes currently in force in Huntley, that no applicadon for a Class "D" or liquor store license would be considered by tlie Board. Issuance of such a license would seriously handicap the presently li¬ censed taverns in that it would eli¬ minate virtually aU carry-out sales at the taverns. Since package cus¬ tomers frequently spend additional amounts at the bar at the time of purchase, a package store would make serious inroads into the meager revenues the taverns now exist on. It also is conceivable that some cus¬ tomers would confine their pur¬ chases entirely to a packa^ store (at cut rate prices) and bypass the taverns completely,. thereby further seriously damaging the tavern re¬ venue. Addition of another retail outlet could only greatly harm the present license holdeie. We urgently request that tbe vil¬ lage Board review, reappraise and then rescind the Amendment pro- Contfaned on page 2 VILLAGE BOARD The Huntley School Board heW a rather short meeting last Monday, February 8, 1971 in the tioard room in the High School.
