Deerfield trustees to back officer, beverage policy at meeting
The Village of Deerfield board of trustees will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday to promote Andrew Kupsak to police sergeant, review a local Starbucks’ liquor license application and more.
Following the call to order, roll call and Pledge, the board will hear the report and recommendations regarding a local Starbucks’ request for a Class C liquor license. Chief of Police John Sliozis previously confirmed a background investigation for Starbucks (Coffee House Holdings Inc. d/b/a Starbucks) and announced no obstacles to the application process.
In a letter dated August 19, 2015, to Mayor Harriet Rosenthal, Starbucks Spokesperson James Webster outlined the retailer’s rigorous guidelines for implementing what it hopes will be a policy allowing the establishment to serve alcoholic beverages.
“Any customer requesting a glass of wine or beer must do so at the store counter and must first present valid government-issued identification,” Webster stated. “Starbucks adheres to a strict ‘one-person, one-ID, one-beverage’ policy. All alcoholic drinks are poured by the Starbucks partner into glass containers readily distinguishable from non-alcoholic beverages and are then given to the customer at the hand-off place. In this way, Starbucks maintains complete control over the transaction to ensure that only lawful sales are made.”
On the Consent Agenda, three ordinances are on the schedule for a salon, traffic intersection signage and a fence modification. New Business agenda items are made up of multiple approvals for a governmental traffic project, including engineering services at North Avenue and authorization to purchase a vehicle for police administration.
A Payroll Summary report for December 2015 will be available and approved; Bills & Payroll for the meeting will reveal a complete alphabetized list of vendors, description of product or service and invoice amount for sundry needs, from office supplies, tools, appliance and equipment repair to department apparel, catering and refreshments, landscaping, utilities, inspections and laboratory sampling fees.
