Mayor Paul Soglin’s veto of a Taco Bell liquor license will stand after the Madison City Council failed to get the votes needed to override it Tuesday.
Council members voted 9-7 in favor of overturning Soglin’s decision to block a Taco Bell Cantina, 534 State St., from selling beer and wine due to his concerns about alcohol-fueled violence Downtown. But 14 of the council’s 20 members are needed to successfully override a veto. Four members were absent Tuesday.
