Town of Milton tavern faces sanction
The Countryside Inn, west of Milton, may be closing for 60-days. The Milton Town Board Thursday night held a quasi-judicial hearing to consider a complaint filed against license holder Rich Erdman, claiming he has run a "disorderly or riotous, indecent or improper" tavern. The action follows a Rock County Sheriff's Office investigations into separate shooting incidents, reported outside the bar, last June and this January. Erdman and his attorney have argued police "couldn't corroborate" evidence the January shooting happened at the bar. The suspension will go into effect March 1st.
