BIDDEFORD — City councilors voted 5-4 Monday night to deny renewal of Homer’s Pub and Sports Bar’s liquor license.

The decision comes after Police Chief Roger Beaupre recommended the City Council deny the license based on documentation of police intervention. Beaupre provided the council with documentation of 33 calls for service during in the past year. Of those calls, 11 were related to over-serving customers, lack of cooperation, disorderly conduct and drug activity; 17 were assaults, disturbances and drug activity; four were related to Maine Drug Enforcement Agency investigations; and one was a theft complaint.

City Clerk Carmen Morris said the council’s recommendation will be sent to the state’s liquor licensing and compliance division. She said Homer’s owner Thomas Huot is appealing the council’s decision at the state level.
