Casey's poised to reopen

NORTH CREEK Two Glens Falls area women are poised to reopen Caseys North restaurant in time for the upcoming ski season. Kelly Hayes of Queensbury and Angela Cugini of South Glens Falls told the Johnsburg Town Board on Tuesday that they have the restaurant under contract and are attempting to open for business by Dec. 7. Its a stretch, Hayes told the board. But thats what were shooting for. Definitely by the 14th but were shooting for the 7th. The Route 28 restaurant closed following the summer season as owners Bill and Maureen Donovan sought a buyer for the property. Hayes and Cugini, operating as AK Northern Enterprises, said they plan to purchase the property and have it under contract. But they want to open before the sale is final and will do so under a lease arrangement with the Donovans so as to take advantage of the winter ski season. The women sought and received from the board a waiver of the 30-day notification requirement that is normally required when a business applies for a liquor license. By state law, a business must notify the local government body 30 days prior to applying for a liquor license unless the local body agrees to waive the requirement. Its something we have done fairly routinely, Supervisor Bill Thomas said of the waiver. The women began interviewing for staff on Wednesday. Hayes has an extensive background in the restaurant industry in the North Creek area having worked at the Copperfield Inn and at Tannery Lounge at Gore Mountain. North Creek has always shown its potential to become an unsurpassed town with economical stability and as it grows, I would like to share part in that, Hayes told the board in her letter applying for the waiver. Cugini works in real estate and has developed several new housing subdivisions in the Glens Falls area. In her association with Realty USA, she has been their top producer. Cugini said she wishes to expand her business endeavors beyond the realm of real estate.
