With application approvals from the Terrytown City Council, the new Kozy Keno Bar and Grill will be open for business later this month.
“I’m ready to go now,” said owner Paul Guhn. “Now I’m just waiting to be able to get the liquor license and keno license in the building.”
The keno equipment has remained in the building since it was called The Pond. The keno licensor will be in the building this week to get the system up and running again.
Guhn said his liquor license should be approved by Sept. 19. The keno license takes an additional two to three days for approval.
“I’m hoping to be open by the 22nd,” Guhn said. “We’ll have a soft opening to get everyone familiar with the operation, and then have a grand opening and a hog roast later and let everyone know that keno is back in Terrytown.”
Kozy Keno Bar and Grill will be open seven days a week, opening at 10 a.m. Guhn plans to feature lunch specials from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. And on Thursdays, Koza Karaoke will be featured.
In other action, Terrytown City Council members approved a new budget of $4,876,209. The levy will remain the same at 47.5 cents and the property tax request will be $104,283, down slightly from last year due to decreased valuation.
The council also approved the appointment of Shelly Revelle and Don Harsh to serve on the city’s planning commission.
