May 18, 2018 - At a Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) hearing this
week in Lansing, commissioners ordered a 102-day suspension of the liquor
license and permits held by Auto City Service Inc – doing business as
Kensington BP – located at 60999 Grand River Avenue, New Hudson, MI.
Under state law, the MLCC is required to suspend or revoke the liquor license if a
