Mundy Twp. denies liquor license request; Grand Blanc Road reopens

MUNDY TOWNSHIP – Pure Bliss Salon and Spa will not get a liquor license from Mundy Township.

The township Board of Trustees voted Monday to deny the request for a new tavern license to “supply alcohol to people who are getting their hair done, or getting massages, or having couples’ events,” according to township Clerk Tonya Ketzler.

Supervisor David Guigear said granting the license for a spa could jeopardize the potential to bring a restaurant or hotel into the Hill Road Corridor. The spa is located off Hill Road, in Gateway Center.

Guigear said restaurants and hotels are planned uses for properties within the Hill Road Corridor.

“I would hate for us to give our (liquor) licenses out and maybe run the risk of losing a restaurant or a hotel,” he said.

“If we have them available, I would ask the board to hold onto them so we can entice the businesses we want to come to the Hill Road Corridor. Most restaurants in this day and age want a liquor license. I would ask the board to decline this application only because of the concerns I have about developing the corridor.”

In other news, township officials announced that the Grand Blanc Road bridge reopened ahead of schedule. The Genesee County Road Commission had originally promised the bridge repair would be completed by April 20.

In addition, Metro Police Authority Acting Chief Matthew Bade addressed the trustees on recent law enforcement activity.

“Traffic has been one of our nightmares the last couple of months because of weather related incidents,” he said. “Our activity has increased a lot with traffic incidents, both on the expressway and otherwise. Those have taken a lot of our resources.”

Bade also offered active shooter training to the board, saying, “If you have any interest in having active shooter training for your board, we can facilitate that. We have officers who can train you and we are going to offer that to the Swartz Creek City Council, and we would like to offer it to this board as well.”
