POCAHONTAS VILLAGE BOARD MEETING
The Pocahontas Village Board met Monday night and discussed whether a village board member could hold a liquor license. The issue was brought up because in the last election Joe Rakers, owner of Lenjos, was elected to the village board. According to the village attorney, the only restrictions for any board member holding a liquor license would be that the member could not participate on issues involving sale of alcohol within the village, and could not be president of the board since the president of the board is also the Liquor Commissioner.
In other action the board dealt with two properties they were considering for demolition.
They heard a presentation on building a Kiosk for the National Road Association from Road Association Executive Director, John Goldsmith.
