Clawson Welcomes Youth Assistance Case Worker
Council meets Nancy Minckler and sets liquor license hearing during Tuesday’s meeting.
Clawson's new Youth Assistance case worker is committed to helping families that need support with behavior or life changing issues, she told the Clawson City Council on Tuesday night.
Nancy Minckler, who also serves Royal Oak, was recently assigned to Clawson after case worker Liz Csizmadia moved to work in Waterford, Clawson Mayor Penny Luebs said.
At the meeting, Minckler told the council the Youth Assistance program supports at-risk families with problems such as divorce, neglect, disrespect and child behavioral issues. Staff members also work with Clawson schools to address truancy among students, she said.
"My commitment to this community is that we will see every family who wants to meet with us," Minckler said.
Liquor license hearing set
Also at Tuesday's meeting, Council approved a motion for a Jan. 4 public hearing for the preliminary denial or pre-approval of a Class C Liquor License for several Clawson businesses. Al Makan Mediterrenean Cuisine on West 14 Mile Road is seeking its first license. Other businesses seeking approval are American Legion Post, Clawson Steak House, Da Nang Vietnamese Restaurant, Due Venti, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Knights of Columbus, Lim's Palace, Moose Winooski's, National Coney Island, Renshaw Loung, Royal Kubo, Shilla Korean & Japanese Cuisine, Tavern on the Main and The Hide-Out.
The businesses must pass a health department inspection, police department background check and be current on all their water bills before they can be approved, Mayor Luebs said.
Council members announced upcoming events in Clawson, including the annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Nov. 29, Clawson Goodfellows Paper Sale on Dec. 4, Lions Club and Goodfellows Pancake Breakfast on Dec. 5 and Christmas Caroling in Clawson on Dec. 11.
