A liquor license renewal hearing for Hank’s Hideout has been continued, the city of Riverside announced.
The hearing originally was scheduled for 10 a.m. June 19 at the Montgomery County Administration Building, but will be rescheduled because the city’s attorney had a prior commitment that same day, City Manager Bryan Chodkowski said.
Owner Greg Buchholz has been preparing to open Hank’s Hideout at a new location but city officials said concerns from residents who live near the new location on Burkhardt Road, coupled with the number of police calls at the former location, led them to object to the license renewal.
The former Hank’s Hideout at 643 Spinning Road burned down July 1, 2012, and was ruled an arson by the Division of State Fire Marshal. The city has not objected to Hank’s liquor license in the past.
