Hearing scheduled as Frankford pushes for shutdown of T&T bar

As was discussed at Thursday’s Frankford Civic Association meeting, a hearing has been set of T&T bar. Jason Dawkins, Jorge Santana and the offices of Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez and Rep. Tony Payton have pushed for a ‘611 action’ hearing to take action against the bar where Christopher Spence was fatally shot in February.

The action would revoke the bar’s liquor license for a full calendar year and have the facility locked down by state police. The hearing is set for May 2 at 10 a.m. in court room 426 at City Hall. Residents are encouraged to attend.
