Beaver Falls City Council Approves Liquor License To College Hill Sheetz

By a vote of 4-1 last night, the Beaver Falls City Council approved Resolution 1489, which allows the transfer of a previously owned liquor license to the Sheetz currently located at the corner of 37th Street and Route 18 on College Hill in Beaver Falls.

Attorney Paul Namey

The vote was brought down in the second meeting of the evening; in the first the Resolution was brought forth by Sheetz, represented by Pittsburgh attorney Paul Namey from the Flaherty & O’Hara firm. Namey made a large emphasis on the proper security and clean record of the Sheetz franchise:


Despite his argument, several members did attend the meeting to protest the transfer of the license, including Pastor Joseph Sharon from the College Hill Church of The Nazarene. The church is located across Route 18 from the Sheetz location, and Pastor Sharon worried about the effects of alcohol on the surrounding area:


After a brief recess, the council came back to go through its regularly scheduled agenda; and before the final vote, Beaver Falls Mayor George Quay made his beliefs on the matter known:


However, Quay also decided to give the floor for fellow council members to comment; in particular Code Enforcer Doug Carson, who is also the superintendent at Beaver County Christian School. Its campus is located near the Sheetz on College Hill, and Carson openly admitted he was concerned:


The final vote was 4-1, approved by Mayor Quay, Carson, Public Works director Chuckie Kirkland, and Accounting/Finance Director Leonard Chiapetta. The lone dissenting vote came from Parks & Recreation Director Kevin Kunselman.

The timetable for when the College Hill Sheetz will start selling beer and wine is unknown at this time.
