Mavericks Bar and Grille May Be Shut Down By Town In September

A popular South Tewksbury eatery may be shut down for good in September if the town revokes its various licenses due to non-payment of taxes and water bills.
At the urging of Town Manager Richard Montuori, the Board of Selectmen set a hearing date of Sept. 23 to consider revoking the licenses of Mavericks Bar and Grille. The hearing is set for 7:30 p.m. at the interim Town Hall on Main Street.
According to Town Treasurer/Collector Kelly Odams, Mavericks owes the town 95,755.96 in past due taxes and water bill. Of that total, $79,475.48 is unpaid property taxes from Fiscal Years 2012, 2013 and 2014. The first property tax bill of FY 2015 was just sent out this month.
According to Odams, Mavericks also owes $14,755.21 in unpaid water bills dating back to September 2013 and another $525.27 in overdue personal property taxes (kitchen equipment etc.)
"I believe (Mavericks unpaid taxes) has been an ongoing issue since I've been on the board," said Todd Johnson, chairman of the Board of Selectmen. "Hopefully, the owners of Mavericks will address this in a prompt and effective way."
According to town records, Mavericks, its building and property are owned by Richard W. Proctor Trust and March and Main Realty Trust.
Attempts to contact the ownership of Mavericks for comments on the tax issue were unsuccessful.
It is within the power of the Board of Selectmen to revoke Mavericks liquor license, as well as their entertainment license and their license to serve food.
In recent years, Mavericks has come under fire from neighbors for excessive noise and for poor behavior by patrons in the parking lot.
