Long range plans are to have an expanded menu, outdoor patio and/or tiki bar. Business hours are 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. and six or seven days a week. There was no public comment and the board approved the licenses for liquor “On and Off Sale”, 3.2 malt liquor “Off Sale” and a dance permit. These are the first new licenses approved in over 20 years by the county.

Liquor license was also approved for Rolling Hills Golf Club.

Commissioners James Jens and Robert Moline attended SAWS meeting on March 11 however without a quorum the meeting was rescheduled to March 18.
