Plainview city council fires municipal liquor store manager

Posted:
PLAINVIEW, Minn. (KTTC) -

While city council members could not legally discuss more details, they said the allegations were "egregious".

Don Hall had been working at the Plainview municipal liquor store some 27 years, according to the Plainview Interim City Administrator.

But on October 11th, the city placed him on paid administrative leave. 

After complaints were filed against Hall, the city investigated.

The findings led the City Council to vote unanimously to terminate his employment.

Hall's lawyer, and Plainview Council members declined to say more. 

Also tonight -- the council hosted a public hearing dealing with the city's liquor code. 

A new change to the code says now, Clubs, hotels and restaurants are the only places allowed to have permanent on sale licenses.

Before, only bars and restaurants could get a license, but there are no establishments in Plainview that operate exclusively as a bar.
