A long-anticipated hearing on the future of the Best Liquors alcohol license was postponed yesterday before it began.

Two members of the Red Bank Borough Council— John Curley and Michael DuPont— were out sick, and a third, RJ Bifani, recused himself because of a business relationship he had with the store’s owner, Sunny Sharma, according to Mayor Pasquale Menna.

No date for a resumption of the case has yet been determined.

Today’s Asbury Park Press has a story, including news that the borough has hired an outside attorney to handle the matter.

From the story:

The council also hired attorney Michael Holzapfel as special counsel for the case, since borough attorney Kenneth Pringle and his firm drafted the charges brought by the borough, Menna said.
