TEWKSBURY -- Selectmen next month will convene a revocation hearing on all licenses held by Mavericks Restaurant and Lounge on Main Street, including its liquor license, for nonpayment of taxes.

Town Manager Richard Montuori told selectmen Mavericks "has not paid its taxes in quite some time. They were given approval of their liquor license last year in hopes of paying their taxes, but they have not. They owe a significant amount -- all told, $9,000."

Selectmen Chairman Todd Johnson asked Montuori if Mavericks is the only liquor-license holder in abeyance on its taxes, to which Montuori said, "For more than a year? Yes."

The hearing will take place Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 7:30 p.m. on the entertainment, amusement device, liquor and common victualler licenses for Mavericks, which is at 2212 Main St.

"Since I've been on the board, this has been a repetitive issue," Johnson said. "Hopefully, the owner of Mavericks will address this in a prompt and effective way."

In other business, selectmen:

* Scheduled the fall Special Town Meeting for Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. at Tewksbury Memorial High School. The warrant for that meeting will close Aug. 22.

* Reappointed Daniel Elliman and appointed Nancy Gentile to the Beautification Committee, and appointed Robert Bodoni to the Town Center Master Plan Committee.

* Accepted Katie Way as a town road.

Montuori also told selectmen the town's automated recycling program will begin on Sept.


10. All recycling materials must be kept in 96-gallon containers, which will be picked up by Allied Waste every two weeks.

The recycling containers will be distributed to each residential unit in town starting next week or the week after. The containers will include directions that indicate they must only be used for recycling.

"No other container can be used for recycling," Montuori said, adding that current recycling containers can be used for yard waste.

Obtaining a second recycling container can be made available at no charge by calling Montuori's office.
