Low Moor tavern closed by state authorities

By Jeremy Huss
Staff writer

Cousins Tap in Low Moor was closed May 7 on the order of the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division (ABD) after the owner failed to appeal the denial of a class C liquor license.

A May 7 e-mail from ABD regulator Annie Adamovicz states the liquor license for Jen Corp, doing business as Cousins Tap, was denied March 6 because the corporation no longer was active.

The e-mail states the period to appeal the license denial has elapsed without an appeal being filed.

"As you will recall, the ABD granted time for you to obtain reinstatement of your corporation. As of today's date, the corporation is not reinstated and the time granted to you has elapsed," the e-mail states.

The letter concludes, "Please be advised effective immediately, alcoholic beverages may not be sold or given away by any person in or on the premises known as Jen Corp, doing business as Cousins Tap, located at 106 Third St., Low Moor, Iowa."

Jenni Foster of Low Moor is listed in Iowa Secretary of State records as the registered agent for Jen Corp.

A copy of the e-mail was sent to Low Moor city clerk Karen Roode to inform the city alcohol sales now are prohibited at the bar, and the council discussed the notice as emergency business at its May 7 meeting.

"There should be no activity there, and there should be no one accepting or obtaining alcoholic beverages there, as of today," Roode said.

Roode said she observed the sheriff's office was present at the bar earlier in the day. Council members stated they observed items being removed from the rear of the bar and loaded into a truck during the day.

The council at its March meeting approved a local liquor license for Jen Corp before it was revoked by the state, but Roode said the council hadn't done anything improper.

Iowa Secretary of State records show Jen Corp was administratively dissolved Aug. 9, 2012, for failure to file 2012 biennial report.

Records show the corporation has twice previously been dissolved and reinstated for failure to file biennial reports in 2010 and 2002. The articles of incorporation were filed Feb. 23, 1998.
