Council Approves Memorial Marker, Various Licenses

The following agenda items were approved at the Nov. 13 meeting of the Coventry Town Council.


Council members voted unanimously to approve a measure giving the family of the late Peter Suorsa, former president of Coventry Survey Company, to establish a permanent granite memorial marker at the base of the tree already planted in his memory on Town Hall/Library grounds.

“I think you made an elderly couple very happy,” said David Jervis, speaking on behalf of Sam and Shirley Suorsa, parents of Peter Suorsa.


  • Dozens of liquor licenses for Class A, B (full liquor), B, Ltd. (beer and wine); D and E establishments throughout the town were unanimously approved without discussion by council members or without any comments by any one of the estimated 30 people in attendance.
  • Victualizing licenses for other establishments were also renewed unanimously without discussion.
  • The Private Detective license for Robert Conover was renewed unanimously.

Council President Gary Cote lauded town officials and candidates for their conduct during the election. Praise was also given to town officials for the handling of operations surrounding Hurricane Sandy.

Cote also noted that the next Council scheduled for Nov. 19 at Town Hall should be brief and will include a swear-in followed by a reception for newly-elected town council members.
