By Jasmine Desarae

Union City, PA – During Union City’s previous Borough Council meeting, a public hearing was given for the Country Fair in town. This public hearing was to bring forth the possibility of the convenience store receiving a liquor license transfer. At tonight’s meeting, Union City community members came to voice their opinion on the matter once again.

The community was given a chance to speak during the meeting’s “hearing of the visitors” portion. Jessey Bloss was the first to speak on the Country Fair subject. He brought to the council’s attention the convenience of Country Fair acquiring the liquor license. He mentioned that not everyone likes to go into the bar environment, like Kim’s Townhouse, just to get some beer and it is a lot more expensive. Another point Bloss brought to light was the beer distributor’s inconveniences for some community members. As Bloss put it, he is a man who works late, and the beer distributor is only open until 5:00 PM. Bloss continued by reminding the group that Union City Beverage does not take credit cards. As of now, these are the town’s only two options.

Next to speak on the matter was community member Dan Williams. He too is looking for a convenience factor. To follow what Bloss said, Williams does not generally go into Kim’s Townhouse, especially to pay “triple the price.” Williams touched upon Union City Beverage by stating he does not generally carry cash. He then commented on the distributor being closed on Sunday. Other than these two spots, there is nowhere else to go but Waterford. By going there, Union City community members would be feeding money into another town, rather than their own. Williams’ wife, Tessa Williams, agreed completely about convenience, but added she will not go into a bar by herself.

Another member, Steve Jones, followed the previous visitors by making a statement of his own. He believes that by denying the liquor license, Union City would lack progressiveness. Jones likes the idea that the company is talking about creating more jobs in the community and adding an area for people to sit and relax. Jones also brought up that Union City is a town people transit through, which means there is a possibility of more business for the town. He continued by asking, “are we going to start being prejudice to other establishments” just because Union City already has a place that sells the same thing?

Country Fair employee, Ann Mourer, was in attendance again to reiterate her appreciation for the company as a whole. She added that Country Fair has as much invested into this as anybody else and just as much to lose if something were to go wrong.

Dean Brumagin, however, was the first to have a negative response toward the liquor license transfer. Brumagin believes that because this is a conservative town, Country Fair would actually lose business from older community members. At the time of the comment, Brumagin was under the impression that people would be allowed to sit in the store and drink as long as they would like. Representative Paul Rankin quickly corrected this idea.

Rankin reminded the group that this is a r-license (restaurant license); therefore, the establishment is required to put in a seating area. Despite that, though, there are other rules that apply. Anybody who chooses to consume their drinks on the premises is limited to 40 ounces AND must purchase a prepared food item, as well. Rankin continued by informing the community members that there will be a separate cash register to purchase alcohol and added security cameras. He also added at other Country Fair locations, there typically is not anyone who chooses to consume their alcohol at the store.

Bystander, Jeff Ferringer, added he does not drink, but has no problem with Country Fair acquiring a liquor license. Chief of Police, David Pernice, insisted he has no opinion on the matter. Borough President, Dan Brumagin, concluded this section of the meeting by thanking the visitors for their comments and further insight. The final vote will be announced at the Borough Council meeting next month.
