Mayor Paul Soglin introduced his 2017 Executive Capital Budget last week. This week the Board of Estimates reviews each agency's requests on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, BOE also holds a regular meeting and there is one item is of special interest. The Friends of Sid Boyum have raised enough money to purchase the house from the city. The city has first dibs to purchase the foreclosed property from the County and worked with the Friends group to turn around and sell the property to them. Also on Monday, the Police and Fire Commission will hear three complaints against Police Chief Koval. The new Park Impact Fee schedules and open space report will be at Parks on Wednesday.

The capacity will be between 120-150 people and the lease will include use of the Plan B parking lot. No outdoor amplified music and the applicant will wait til spring to apply for outdoor seating and service. The second application will be for Growl LLC, dba Barleypop Tap and Shop for a Class B Beer and Class C license at 2045 Atwood Ave Suite B (next door to the Monsoon Siam). Estimated capacity 80. The concept is to open a retail store specializing in craft beer sales of growlers,  bottles and cans with a tasting room attached for on-premise sales of beer and wine according to Jason Hajdik, the applicant. The hours would be weekdays til 11p, weekends until midnight, 100% alcohol. Jason presented at the Sept 8 SASY meeting. The SASY Council did not take a vote but the response was generally supportive. I also support this application.
