Steamboat Springs resident Victor Tarango leased space at 535 Green St., next to Craig’s U.S. Post Office, in hopes of opening a new business, Tarango’s Night Club. But, aspirations for the venture hit a snag Tuesday night when the Craig City Council unanimously denied retail gaming and tavern liquor licenses due to alleged false information on his application. “We take alcohol licenses very seriously in our community,” council member Byron Willems said. “It’s very important that we get accurate information before we act on something like this and it’s not a positive sign when we get this and the information is inaccurate.” According to a background check conducted by Sgt. John Forgay of the Craig Police Department, records obtained through the Colorado Crime Information Center indicated Tarango incorrectly answered questions on his liquor license permit application.
