Saturday, April 29th, 2017 – In a decision dated April 27, 2017 and released yesterday afternoon, the Liquor Control Commission at the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) made a formal decision not to renew the restaurant liquor permit for Slyce Pizza and Bar,141 Arch Street in Hamden. This written decision followed three days of public testimony from Hamden public officials and members of the Hamden community.
The hearing was prompted by the filing of a remonstrance petition, a formal document filed by at least ten Hamden residents objecting to the renewal of the liquor permit.
“The Liquor Control Commission takes these decisions very seriously,” said Acting Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull, “Public input is very valuable to us at DCP. We know that our Liquor Control Division and the Commission can do their best work protecting public health and safety when they hear from local residents.”
The Liquor Control Division at DCP works with and takes referrals from police, businesses, organizations, residents and other institutions to ensure our liquor permit holders are acting in accordance with the law.
