The hearing on Thursday (as this paper hits the streets) for an alcohol license at Green Hill Golf Course raises an interesting question: Will a citizen board go along with the city’s wishes, or cave to advocates? The city is so steadfast in its support of alcohol at the golf course’s clubhouse, it is requiring operator Savvas Fotiadis, owner of the Manor Restaurant to secure an alcohol license if he wants to keep the lease. The License Commission has supported alcohol at the course before, approving a one-day tournament license as a trial run, and is expected to approve Fotiadis over the ongoing hum of opposition from those who feel parks should be alcohol-free. Some of those opponents are expected to show at Thursday’s hearing, despite the likely victory of a 3+ year battle by DPW Commissioner Bob Moylan, City Manager Michael O’Brien and others to secure a “real” clubhouse.
