Eatery's liquor license restricted

Oliveira's prohibited from serving alcohol after 10 p.m.


“We’re endangering our patrolmen,” colleague Fred Murtagh said. “I don’t believe we need this.” He reasoned that the incidents were likely linked to “over-serving” by the establishment. Armstrong noted that there is no proof of this.

“I don’t know why we should have to sit and wait for something worse to happen,” Murtagh said.

While members indicated some sympathy with management, they adopted a motion by Delaney to forbid the sale of alcohol after 10 p.m. for the next six months. Currently, it can be served until 1 a.m.

“We’re losing some valuable hours during the holiday season,” Keilty said. “ It’s more than an inconvenience in that it really changes the business plan.” He suggested a probation instead.

“Somebody’s got to pay a price for what has happened,” Murtagh said. “This is right down the gut of our city.”
