"It's a war, it's one we have to win"

Town Council last night suspended the liquor licenses of three establishments caught selling alcohol to minors in a police sting.

Police Chief Steven Williams told the Town Council that the sting on May 15 involved six officers and three teenagers working undercover to check all of Franklin's 31 establishments licensed to sell alcohol.

The teens were told to show their actual licenses, which indicate their date of birth, a phrase in red stating that they are under 21, and which are also vertical, also signifying they are underage, Williams said.

Although some councilors were sympathetic toward the owners of Devita's Market, 198 East Central St., and and J.B.'s Liquor World, 365 West Central St., both first-time offenders, they ultimately voted to stand by their precedent of suspending the liquor licenses for three days.

Devita's Market and Liquor World will lose their liquor license for one day Friday and have two days held in abeyance for two years, the council voted.

The council also took Williams' recommendation and suspended Teppanyaki Restaurant's liquor license for five days, starting Friday.
