Liquor license transferred to owner of Genova's
The Board of License Commissioners of Carroll County recently approved a transfer for a Class B beer, wine and liquor license for Genova's Restaurant in Hampstead.
Vita A. Chesney, the current licensee, requested to be removed from the license, because he will no longer be able to supervise the restaurant on a daily basis.
Genova's is owned and operated by Francesco Marciano, who requested to have his name put on the liquor license.
The board approved the transfer after a hearing in which several people testified on Marciano's behalf.
