City begins process to strip C.F. Donovan's liquor license

The Boston Licensing Board has started proceedings that could end with bar owner Arthur Donovan losing his valuable liquor license for his C. F. Donovan's Bar and restaurant on Savin Hill Ave.

Donovan is already close to losing another liquor license he's held for nearly three years for a Cleary Square, Hyde Park restaurant that has never opened. The city closed his popular Dorchester location in November for failing to make payments on $300,000 in city loans used to get the Hyde Park location open.  Read more

The school building, which has been largely dormant since the former St. William school closed two years ago, will be sold to the high school for $1.2 million.  Read more
