6/26 Germantown Restaurant to Remain Open Despite Foreclosure

Buzdum's Pub and Grill in Germantown will remain open despite a foreclosure on the property. The Germantown Village Board has opted to postpone approval of a liquor license renewal application for Radomir Buzdum, who operates the bar and restaurant located on Maple Road. There is currently a foreclosure suit pending against the Buzdum Trust, which owns the property. In addition, five years of back taxes amounting to more than $50,000 is owed to the village of Germantown. According to village ordinance, no liquor license may be granted if taxes are deliquent for more than six months. While Buzdum, who is brothers with Buzdum Trust trustee Boro Buzdum, said he understands the ordinance, he pleaded with the board to consider his situation.  Buzdum urged the board to wait to take action on the license renewal at least until after the foreclosure hearing scheduled for today. After the hearing today, Village Attorney Brian Sajdak said he estimates it might not be actually be resolved until early 2015. Other village trustees are leaning towards allowing the business to remain open until they see what happens to the property itself. The board will reconsider the matter at their second meeting in July. Until then, Buzdum  will be allowed to continue operating  the restaurant without the renewal unless the license is revoked for some other reason.
