Home brew, classic car requests heard by SV board

SPRING VALLEY--The Spring Valley Village Board considered several requests earlier this month.

Guy Leach asked the board to consider a permit for a brew pub license for the restaurant at his golf course. Village Counsel Rory O'Sullivan advised a conditional use permit. The current restaurant license and liquor license already allow Leach to brew and sell home brewed beer.

Customers may also bring their own growlers and pay to have them filled for consumption off premises. The golf club cannot bottle and sell the beer without the requested permit.

Trustee Rich O'Connell asked about waste and Leach displayed a small jar indicating the negligible volume being generated. The golf course has applied for a conditional use permit allowing them to use their restaurant facilities to serve beer.

The Tri-County Cruisers asked for and received the necessary permits for this year's car show. The show will take place in the usual location on Saturday, June 8, and the main street will be closed between First and Akers, from alley to alley, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In other business:

The board considered action to approve a resolution adopting the Pierce County All Hazards Mitigation Plan. The resolution is a prerequisite to receiving federal emergency funding in the case of flooding, tornadoes and major storms. Certification of the levy is another requirement; however, the expense of certification has been determined to be prohibitive. Without certification, five homes would be required to carry flood insurance.
