Pleasant Valley Country Club may open dining room to public

The Pleasant Valley Food and Beverage this week asked Bullskin Township supervisors to approve a process of transferring a liquor license to it as a first step in allowing the dining area at the Pleasant Valley Country Club to be open to the public.

Greg Nichols, who is the legal representative of the Pleasant Valley Food and Beverage, said it will apply for a transfer of a liquor license recently held by Skywalker LLC in Masontown.

“The club is currently a private entity, but they wish to be open to the public,” Nichols said.

In order for the transfer to occur, the club needs approval from the township as well as the liquor control board.

“There will really be no changes in how we operate,” Nichols said. “It's just a matter of getting a restaurateur to operate our dining room as a restaurant rather than just a private dining facility.”

He added that once the transfer process begins, it should take eight to 12 weeks.

“We're prepared to start immediately — we're hopeful to have everything in place by early summer,” Nichols added.

The Pleasant Valley Country Club was founded in 1922.

In other township business, supervisors reminded residents that the bridge in Bridgeport near the Bridgeport Sportsman's Club is scheduled to close April 1 for the construction of a new bridge.

The estimated time frame for closure is three to four months, but supervisors think it might be closed longer.

Supervisors passed a motion to solicit for bids for various road materials. The bids are due to the township by 3 p.m. April 24 and will be opened at the regular township meeting at 7 that night.

Supervisors announced tentative spring cleanup dates as May 6 through 10.

Also, residents were reminded that due to redistricting, Deberah Kula will be the state representative representing the township. State Rep. Tim Mahoney formerly represented the area.

The township received more than $92,000 in Act 13 money from gas well usage. Supervisors plan to put about $47,000 in a fund to do road construction, maintenance and repairs, $30,000 in a fund to deal with storm water sewer systems maintenance and repair and about $15,000 in a fund for emergency preparedness.
