Barkley’s to defend liquor license

FRISCO – Dan Fallon, owner of Barkley’s Margaritagrille, will appear before the Frisco Town Council tonight for a show cause hearing to renew his liquor license.

According to Police Chief Tom Wickman, several liquor law violations have occurred at Barkley’s in the past year, since its last renewal.

At a council meeting in November, Wickman cited three instances in which Barkley’s staff served alcohol to visibly intoxicated patrons and one instance in which staff served alcohol to a patron under 21 years old.

Wickman also reported that there has been a pattern of conduct requiring police presence around Barkley’s, indicating that the licensed premise is not being conducted in a decent, orderly and respectable manner.

“We’ve addressed the issues internally,” Fallon said. “We’ve implemented systems to keep alcohol service responsible and we’ve done trainings. We’ve done everything we can to be one of the most responsible servers of alcohol in the town of Frisco.

“We took immediate and drastic steps to come into compliance following those events,” Fallon added.

The town council serves as Frisco’s liquor board, and, as such, has the power to grant or decline liquor license applications and renewals.
