Battle Brewing Over Liquor License

Posted: Updated:

One proposed business in downtown Davenport is stirring up some controversy.

A Stop and Save liquor store is trying to move into an old gas station at Warren and Second streets, but business owners in the area say there are too many liquor stores in the area already.

They are getting a petition together to put a stop to this.

"When I come to work in the mornings, I've got cans with brown paper bags on them, broken bottles, people in the doorways; It's going to cause nothing but trash, garbage, a mess," said Bob Stansberry, co-owner of Mary's on 2nd.

The petition has over 50 signatures on it already.

The Stop and Save's liquor license is up for approval at city council Wednesday.

Those against it plan to present their case then.
