Latest Licensing Board appointee may be in jeopardy

More delays for liquor, other applicants possible


The board tomorrow also is scheduled to consider issuing a liquor license to a bar that would open at the former Marabu Cafe, which lost its liquor license in August after a series of incidents that climaxed with a shooting in a bathroom on July 5, 2011.

In the meantime, Mayor Lantigua has named his wife, Mayra Lantigua, to chair the Licensing Board, replacing former chairman Richard Fielding, who died in September, precipitating the crisis over the board’s membership. Mayra Lantigua was appointed to the board by former Mayor Michael Sullivan.
