Special-use permits issued for new tavern

By on April 16, 2010

ELBURN—Kevin Schmidt, owner of Schmidt’s Towne Tap, was granted three special uses he applied for recently for the bar and restaurant he opened last December at 107 N. Main St., Elburn.

The special uses, approved by the Village Board on Monday, will allow Schmidt to operate the tavern, to serve alcoholic beverages in conjunction with a restaurant and to offer live entertainment.

Village officials did not require Schmidt to apply for the first two special uses before they allowed him to open in December, although the village code required it under the B-1 zoning ordinance. Village Administrator Erin Willrett said it was an oversight on the part of village staff and the Village Board.
