RANDOLPH, Mass.-- On Feb. 4, the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission suspended the liquor license of the Randolph Country Club for not having a working fire sprinkler system, The Quincy Patriot Ledger reported.
Commission chairman Eddie J. Jenkins said the commission doesn't usually make immediate rulings, but took the action because of the ''seriousness of this.''
The indefinite suspension of the license will last until the building is in compliance with a 2004 state law requiring the fire suppression systems in bars and nightclubs with capacity of 100 or more people. The law required the systems to be installed by Nov. 15, 2007.
