Businesses Get Village Support

At their monthly meeting in May, the Richfield Springs Village Board waived the 30-day waiting period for two businesses planning to sell alcohol.


At the meeting approval was given for Gravelding Point Enterprises and Brickhouse Pizzeria to forego the 30-day waiting period. This allowed them to file their application for a liquor license with the state sooner.


Board members said they wanted to expedite the application to help a new business find its greatest success. Trustee Warren Leonard voted against waiving the period for both businesses.


In other matters during the 30-minute meeting, the water and sewer account at 55 Lake St. was inactivated because the building was demolished.


Mayor Robin Moshier said the village was informed by the Richfield Town Planning Board that 177 Main St. will be made into a pocket park by the Greater Mohawk Valley Land Bank.


A total of $59,727 in unpaid water and sewer bills was approved to be levied on the 2021-22 village property tax bills for those property owners.
