LYNWOOD | The village picked up another new business at Tuesday night’s board meeting.
Club Low Key will open for business next week after being granted a Class C liquor license by Village President Gene Williams and the board.
The club, 19755 Torrence Ave., occupies a building that used to be a bar and had a liquor license associated with it. Williams said the license granted to Club Low Key was a transfer of that existing license and did not change the number of licenses in the village.
Amani Daniels, the proprietor of Club Low Key, attended the meeting and thanked the board for the opportunity.
“We will be opening next week,” he told board members. “We have two or three deliveries coming in over the next few days, and then we will be ready for business.”
The board also officially welcomed two other new businesses to the village when it approved resolutions for an automobile detail center and an automobile sales lot.
Lanard Allen will open an automobile detail center at 2200 198th St. The center will be able to handle eight to 10 vehicles.
Tino Melone, who owns Lynwood Firestone at 21551 Lincoln Highway, will open a used automobile sales lot on part of the same property.
Both business applications were approved by the Planning and Zoning Board two weeks ago and sent to the Village Board for final approval.
The board also announced that Old Joe Orr Road will get a face-lift before it is officially turned over to the village.
Cook County approved a project to resurface the old road that is now bypassed by the extension project. In addition, the county will replace the 18-inch storm sewer with a 30-inch sewer and repair curbs and drainage ditches.
The project will begin May 6 and be completed Aug. 2.
After that, Old Joe Orr Road will be turned over to the village for further upkeep.
