Jeffrey’s of Westfield Sells Liquor License, Mobile Command Center’s Use Questioned, at Town Council Meeting
Tuesday, July 15, 2014 • 9:54pm
WESTFIELD, NJ — Westfield’s town council approved the sale of Jeffrey’s of Westfield’s full liquor license at Tuesday night’s regular meeting. The restaurant will now be BYO, town administrator Jim Gildea told the council at its conference meeting earlier that evening. The new owner of the license does not yet have a location for its use.
The council also passed resolutions to award contracts for 2014 improvements of Westfield Ave. and Rahway Ave.
During public comments, resident Greg Kasko told the council he had sent an email asking his ward councilmen, Mark LoGrippo and David Oliviera, about the cost of sending the town’s mobile command center, its accompanying vehicles and six officers to a trade show for three days in Atlantic City in June, where he said the command center was displayed with the name of its producer, Power Innovations. LoGrippo’s response 15 days later, that he should inquire at the town clerk’s office, was unsatisfactory, he said.
No direct response to Kasko’s question was given at the meeting. Westfield Police Chief David Wayman told TAP into Westfield after the meeting that the event in Atlantic City was a regional law enforcement and public safety expo at which the police department gained exposure and training.
Also at the meeting, Robert Hagan, manager of City Sports, and Sales Associate Ashley Gwynn gave a presentation about the new sporting goods store in Downtown Westfield.
“I get a real sense of community in the town of Westfield,” said Hagan. He explained that the store provides athletes of every sport with everything they need to perform their best.
“We’re working hard to get all of the types of products that the residents of Westfield have requested,” said Hagan. To read more about City Sports, click here.
Mayor Andy Skibitsky and Councilwoman Vicki Kimmins were absent from the meetings.
