MERRILLVILLE | The Villa Del Sol restaurant plans to install a glass enclosure around its patio.
The Board of Zoning Appeals granted a variance allowing the enclosure.
Sergio Gutierrez, who operates the business at 2225 W. U.S. 30, said the patio currently is used during the summer. Adding the enclosure would keep the patio open in the spring and fall, he said.
The enclosure also would protect the fountain area in the patio.
