Editor's Note:
I usually don't post news alerts for other municipalities but this relates to Barrett because a liquor license is transferring out of the immediate area.  This is more of an FYI - 


This public notice is for a Smithfield Township public meeting, not Barrett:  


PUBLIC NOTICE SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP MONROE COUNTY, PA PUBLIC HEARING RESOLUTION FOR AN INTERMUNICIPAL TRANSFER OF A RESTAURANT LIQUOR LICENSE FROM BARRETT TOWNSHIP TO SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP FOR McKEE 209, LLC PUBLIC MEETING TO VOTE ON SUCH RESOLUTION A regular meeting of the Board of Supervisors of the Township of Smithfield, Monroe County, Pennsylvania will be held on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at 7 p.m. at the Township Municipal Building, 1155 Red Fox Road, East Stroudsburg, PA. At that meeting and as a meeting agenda item, there will be a public hearing to consider and vote on whether or not to adopt Township Resolution No. 443 which is a resolution to transfer a restaurant liquor license from Barrett Township to Smithfield Township. The ordinance would approve an application for the transfer of restaurant liquor license-License Number R-19038-owned by the McKee 209, LLC to its Smithfield Township property located at 2309 Milford Road, East Stroudsburg, PA 18302. Under the PA Liquor Code and the regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, the transfer must be approved by Smithfield Township by ordinance (or resolution) and the Township must hold at least one (1) public hearing pursuant to public notice on the request.
