The hot topic at Wednesday's meeting of the Board of Selectmen will be a public hearing regarding Casa Corona's bid for Marblehead's first carry-in alcoholic beverage license.
Unable to secure a liquor license of their own, Casa Corona owners Jose and Felix Bracamontes are hoping that securing a BYOB license will translate to a boost in business at their Mexican restaurant on Smith Street.
Ever since the restaurant filed a request in September, board members have been hard at work, laying out the guidelines pertaining to local carry-in alcoholic beverage licenses.
They approved these local guidelines at a meeting last month.
During that time, we've received numerous requests from local residents who wanted to know which businesses in town have laid claim to the available liquor licenses.
It just so happens that Wednesday's board meeting will also feature the renewal of all of the town's licenses for 2013.
Board members have said that there are 20 full liquor licenses and five beer and wine licenses available in town. The number of licenses available to each municipality is based on population.
According to the posted agenda, these are the alcohol-related licenses up for renewal Wednesday night:
All-alcoholic package store licenses
