Thank you.

Please confirm that there are no responsive documents for permanent Food Service License for the bar room/lounge area used by patrons. This area was clearly annotated on building plans and inspected for Certificate of Occupancy.

Cocktails and food were being served there during the event that the license in your responsive documents covers. There are pictures with multiple City officials posted on social media of this event where food and cigars were being offered.

Kevin Paige

From: Health And Human Services Danbury

Mr. Paige, I understand that no permanent food license was issued for this
location.

Due to the broad scope of your request, are you able to narrow the list of
documents you are seeking or the time frame for this request?

From: Kevin Paige

Dianne, due to the fact that North American Motorcars opened within the last few months, I do not feel that the scope of this request is broad.

The City has either approved or not approved a customer lounge with bar service or they haven't. Plans were submitted for Certificate of Occupancy within this time frame. Maybe Mr. Esposito would be able to share his experience at the grand opening to clarify this request. I can submit a more expansive list of City officials including City Council Members that might shed some light as well.

Please let me know when I can expect a response. I would be happy to meet with you to discuss.

Kevin Paige

From: Health And Human Services Danbury

Mr. Paige, the Health Department requires approximately 45-60 days to
respond to your request. If any documents are available prior to that
time, we will advise you.

Sincerely,

Dianne Rosemark
