The Supply House on Wye River Road, a popular destination for tourists, is currently closed for repairs.
The pub has had a rough couple of years, with several owners facing foreclosure, and the owners’ attorney recently filed a lawsuit claiming the owners are being “violated” by the town’s code of conduct.
The owner of the pub, a former barber named John Miller, told the local news station KYW that he had been “on a mission” to keep the pub open.
He said that he was looking to open a bar, but that it was not an easy decision.
Miller said he had originally planned to open the pub in December 2018.
But that was pushed back due to the wildfires, and now it is unclear when the pub will reopen.
“It’s a tough situation,” Miller said.
“We are in an economic downturn, we have to do this.”
The town has a code of practice that requires the pub to keep its doors open for customers.
The town said that the code does not apply to supply houses, which are also exempt from the code.
According to the Kentucky Code of Regulations, an establishment that provides services that are a “substantial source of income” is exempt from state and local laws, and may remain open as long as its owner remains in the business.
However, the town has said that supply houses are not subject to that exemption.
Kentucky state law also states that businesses that are “authorized to engage in the transportation, sale, or distribution of alcohol by mail, by the sale of spirits or by the dispensing of alcoholic beverages by mail or by other means” must “provide safe and sanitary drinking areas for the public.”
However, it does not state exactly what the definition of “safe and sanitable” means.
Miller told KYW in December that the supply house is one of the places he was considering opening.
In the wake of the wildfires that ravaged Kentucky in August, Kentucky law enforcement agencies began working to clean up the charred remains of the buildings.
The State of Kentucky’s Office of Emergency Management released a statement in August saying that it had received reports of looting in supply houses and businesses that have been set on fire, with more than 50 people dead in Kentucky alone.
Kentuckians have been sharing photos of the charred buildings on social media in an effort to help with the cleanup efforts.
According to a local CBS affiliate, residents in the town of Woodstock, Kentucky, have been donating to help pay for the cleanup costs.
The station reported that the Woodstock Police Department said that it has received several reports of property damage due to arson.
