A Class I liquor license requested by potential new owners of the Coppermill Restaurant was approved by the McCook City Council Monday night.
Adam Siegfried and Nick Nothnagel sought the license for A & N Restaurant, dba Coppermill Restaurant. It is the same kind of license used by the previous owner.
Nothnagel could not make the meeting Monday night but Siegfried told the council that they will be buying the restaurant from Kevin Ord. The restaurant essentially will stay the same, he said, while perhaps expanding the menu to a Sunday brunch. Other plans could include extending the porch.
In response to a question by Councilman Aaron Kircher, Siegfried said plans for the restaurant will not affect the liquor license.
After the public hearing, the council unanimously approved the application.
The council also approved, as a consent agenda item with no discussion, a request for proposals for the demolition of seven residential houses and one commercial building.
Proposals are due at the city clerk's office by Feb. 26.
Demolition costs will be covered by a Community Development Block Grant, Neighborhood Stabilization Program the city received.
Buildings identified so far to be demolished under the this proposal are: 301 E. Second-house, tank, garage; 206 W. Seventh-house and garage; 1303 East B-house; 203 E. Sixth-house; 508 E. Second-house; 410 South Street-house; 1003 East C-house; 102 W. Third-commercial structure.
Pending necessary paperwork, other buildings are slated for demolition, such as the Romanoff Building at Norris Avenue and B Streets.
