Benham to host expert presentation on nuisance bars

Panelists will include liquor enforcement and Liquor Control Board officials

In her continuing efforts to work with residents and business owners concerned with public safety, vandalism and diminished property values within the 36th District, state Rep. Jessica Benham, D-Allegheny, will host an expert presentation on nuisance bars aimed at proactively addressing those concerns on at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 6. The presentation will be held at City Theatre, 1300 Bingham St., Pittsburgh.

“This presentation is designed to provide members of the community with the necessary tools to appropriately address nuisance establishments near their homes,” Benham said. “It’s not about targeting one business over another, or one street block over the other. It’s bringing together people who are best able to provide expert information concerning existing laws so that the entire community understands their respective rights and obligations under those laws.”

The evening will include commentary and guidance for attendees with regard to the identification, handling and reporting of nuisance bars within the community from the following PA Liquor Control Board and Liquor Control Enforcement panelists:

PLCB Chairman Tim Holden, PLCB Director of Regulatory Affairs Tisha Albert, PLCB Chief Counsel Rod Diaz, PLCE Lieutenant and Western Section Commander Gregory Raybuck, PLCE Sargent and Pittsburgh District Office Director Daniel Mosura and

PLCE Officer and Supervisor of the Nuisance Bar Task Force Daniel Beckey.

According to Benham, the panelists will also respond to as many submitted attendee questions as time allows. Those wishing to ask questions about nuisance bars are encouraged to submit them ahead of the event to, with “December 6 panel question” as the subject.  

Masks will be required for those attending the presentation.
