CRESTON — The Village of Creston Board of Trustees voted to waive a $1,000 liquor license fee for the Moose Knuckle Bar & Grill during the November board meeting at Village Hall on Tuesday. The current liquor license is scheduled to expire this December, but the business will be unable to serve indoors for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Village trustees also voted to donate $2,500 to fund an electronic sign at Creston School on Tuesday. Village President Wayne Williams said the board typically donates $2,500 to the Creston Booster Club each year for use in funding the Creston Booster Day festivities, which were canceled earlier this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The village discussed its upcoming fiscal year tax lexy, which will be approved at the December board meeting next month. The village will lexy a little over $20,000 in taxes for the 2021 fiscal year, an increase of roughly 1 percent from the previous year. Trustees finished the meeting with a vote to exchange snow plows with Bonnell Industries for a cost of $5,442.
