DELAFIELD ó A Beloit-based real estate developer recently submitted a liquor license application for the Delafield Hotel, which filed for receivership in February. Also, 616 Hospitality Group, LLC that owns the luxury hotel and owes Ixonia Bank around $4.4 million filed to have its liquor license renewed.

City Clerk Gina Gresch said no liquor licenses can be issued until the $113,000 the Delafield Hotel owes in taxes are paid in full.

Hendricks Commercial Properties submitted its new liquor license application before the cityís deadline of today. All liquor licenses in the city expire June 30. Gresch said a liquor license can be approved even if a business owes back taxes, but canít be issued.

A message was left Thursday for Rob Gerbitz, president and CEO of Hendricks Management, but was not returned. He oversees and directs all business operations, initiatives and strategic planning for the company, according to its website.

Gresch said Thursday she was not worried about the Delafield Hotel management paying for the back taxes because there have been past years when it owed money for taxes and paid in time to have its liquor license renewed.
