By going after Park 6’s liquor license, the city is putting its own actions up for review
The same group of city officials that decided to try and take a Sixth Street bar’s liquor license will now act as jury to take that license.
The city’s Public Safety and Licensing Committee will stand in judgment of Thomas Holmes and his Park 6 bar at the corner of Park and Sixth streets in Downtown Racine. This is the same five-member committee that unanimously voted to send Park 6 to a “due-process hearing” to possibly take the bar’s liquor license. Their decision is finalized by the entire City Council, but only the committee considers testimony presented for and against the bar.
