Whitehall Township Board of Commissioners voted 5-1 April 8 to deny a resolution that would transfer a liquor license to Sheetz.

Sheetz, the gas station and convenience store at 5001 MacArthur Road, was asking for approval of a liquor license transfer from Homeslate Sports Bar & Grille in Slatington.
