The Montgomery Village Board is scheduled to meet on Monday night with a fairly short agenda in front of trustees.

As WSPY reported last week, the village is being asked to consider granting a liquor license to a proposed multi-use restaurant, entertainment establishment, and "co-operative" type business in the Orchard Rd. corridor.

The item is the only discussion item listed for the meeting and it is not up for a vote but rather is to give direction to village staff if the village wishes to proceed further.

Board documents indicate Derek Drew, with proposed business "Adubb's" at 2086 Orchard Rd., is making the request.

In a letter to the village board, Drew writes he desires,"to create a space that aims to serve and entertain diverse populations."

Similar to the idea of a co/op Drew says the business will provide customers with the opportunity to purchase monthly memberships. The space could transform from bar, to cafe, to yoga studio, to allowing premier viewings, etc.

In the back, there would be video gaming machines in a private enclosed space.

The petitioner says he expects 50% of revenue to be from food and alcohol sales while the rest would be from a combination of subscription fees, weekly activities and video gaming.

In other items, Leslie Salyers, with the League of Women Voters of the Aurora Area, is scheduled to speak to the board regarding their chapter during public comment.

Additional items include $906,996 in bills and building and water usage reports to be approved.

The village board will meet at 7:00 p.m. at village hall on N. River St.
