press play to hear from at-large councilor Karen Wilson-Johnson

Washington City Councilors have approved a liquor license renewal for the Wagon Wheel. They had previously tabled the item until the public safety committee met to address concerns raised in the wake of a fatal brawl outside of another bar last year. The lone no vote at last night’s meeting was at large councilor Karen Wilson-Johnson, who is a member of that committee. She says she needs to see more responsibility taken by the Wagon Wheel’s liquor license holders before she would change her vote. She’d like to see establishments that serve alcohol be more ready and willing to contact police if trouble arises.
