Horvath; and City Council members Colleen O’Connor, R-at large, and Gary Donovan, D-at large.

Ye Old Spirits is nestled in a brick building of small businesses near Third Avenue and offers one of the largest selections of wine, beer and spirits in West Haven.
The historic package store site, remodeled by Conti and located four blocks from downtown, is the former longtime home of Ye Old Liquor Shoppe, in addition to other establishments through the years.
“We have a vast inventory and are willing to special order or carry any item you would like to purchase,” Conti said. “We love West Haven and our neighborhood.”
Ye Old Spirits is open from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.
