Scheduled Splitsville Presentation Gets Postponed

Proposed changes to the Splitsville liquor license applications will have to wait a little longer after Kraft Group officials requested an extension on a planned presentation for the selectmen this Tuesday. The presentation was expected to feature possible concessions to the application.

“They needed a little more time. They wanted to a couple more weeks to put everything together for a better presentation,” Selectmen chairman Mark Sullivan said.

While nothing is scheduled for open session, a discussion on Splitsville with legal counsel is planned for executive session.

The delay comes after a contentious selectmen meeting on Jan. 7 where Sullivan threatened to adjourn the meeting after a misunderstanding where some members of the board were expecting a presentation on possible changes to liquor license application while Kraft Group officials did not believe that was was apart of the evening's agenda.

A discussion on what conditions could go into the new application was had at the request of selectman Jim DeVellis at the same meeting.

Since December, discussions on the liquor license outside of selectmen meetings have been limited to the legal counsels of the town and the Kraft Group in an effort by Sullivan to avoid open meeting law complains.

A new date for the presentation has not been set but could take place as early as the first selectmen meeting in February.

The only way to avoid open meeting complaints is to reign in your board and make them stop committing open meeting law violations. It really is that simple. Mark my words the only "changes" or "concessions" will be a big fat check written by the KO to complete the extortion by our town. There will be no major changes to the proposed venue other than those already worked out by the Chief and Patriot Place security.
