County still waiting for Versailles bar owner payments

Thursday, April 17, 2014, 2:46 a.m.
 

While it sent padlocks to a second area bar, the Allegheny County Treasurer's office still is waiting for word from the owner of the first.

“We haven't heard from him,” an official in Treasurer John Weinstein's office said Wednesday, six days after Allegheny County Sheriff's deputies padlocked The Bridge Tap House & Grille in Versailles.

Weinstein said Friday that Bridge owner Todd Arthrell owes more than $53,759.72 in revenue from Allegheny County's drink tax.

Weinstein's office referred to The Bridge Tap House & Grille in announcing Wednesday's activity at Gone Country At The Firehouse, 400 Second St., Pitcairn.

“Due to this establishment's failure to remit their payment of the Alcoholic Beverage Tax, they are the second establishment to be padlocked within two weeks,” Weinstein said. “These closings are part of my effort to protect the taxpayers from delinquent bar and establishment owners whom misappropriate tax money.”

Gone Country is in far less trouble than Arthrell according to Weinstein's office. Its alleged drink tax liability to date is in excess of $3,704.11.

The Bridge regularly posts on a Facebook page but hasn't since April 9, two days before sheriff's deputies showed up at that establishment at 5200 Walnut St.
