CASH ON THE BARREL HEAD

The Barrel Head is scheduled to go on the auction block.

The popular Jerome watering hole closed over Labor Day weekend in the midst of a foreclosure battle between owner Kevin Davlin and Illinois National Bank, which says that it is owed $1.4 million. Davlin at one point fought the foreclosure action by claiming that he lived at the Barrel Head and that the bank hadn’t given proper notice to foreclose on residential property.

But under an agreement between the bank and Davlin filed recently in Sangamon Circuit Court, the parties have agreed to auction off the Barrel Head as well as Chantilly Lace, a Davlin bar on South Fifth Street that closed more than a year ago, at a sheriff’s sale set for Oct. 25 at the Sangamon County courthouse.

Davlin, the brother of the late Springfield Mayor Tim Davlin, could not be reached for comment.  A recorded greeting on his cell phone said that he is out of the country.
