SUGAR GROVE—Sugar Grove Village Board members on Tuesday voted 5-0 in favor of a 2012-13 liquor license for the Walgreens store located at the corner of Route 47 and Galena Boulevard.

Trustee Tom Renk was absent from the meeting.

“I am glad to have (Walgreens) in town. I wasn’t sure if this would be a Walgreens that serves liquor,” Village President Sean Michels said. “(The building) is looking good. It’s all landscaped. The parking lot is done.”

The Village Board also voted 5-0 to amend a resolution that regulates the number of liquor licenses per class. According to a document from Village Clerk Cynthia Galbreath, the amendment is necessary to “reflect the granting of an additional license for the 2012-13 licensing year.”

Walgreens is slated to open in Sugar Grove in early November.
