(Expires 11/6/2018) The applicant stated the victim came in to the bar already shot and the bartender called the police. He stated that the victim came in to the bar after 2 AM and the police came a few days later to get the DVR. He stated that the people coming out of the bathroom were patrons who had car trouble, and he didn't fight the ticket.

He stated the victim of the shooting was a passerby and was not a patron of the bar. He stated he goes door to door to speak with neighbors, but has not talked to Ms. Simmons. He stated that he has never heard concerns from neighbors and no one has ever called him or left a voicemail. He added the neighbor behind him calls about the trash. He stated that there is a concrete slab so patrons can be smoking on the side of the building. He added that there hasn't been a big crowd since August because it's cold, but they are open every day.

She stated the patrons are loud, there is traffic congestion, and there needs to be a plan of abatement.

She asked about the person in the police report who stated he was in charge of the food. She stated that she has seen pictures on Facebook of food at the premises and she does not believe the applicant's giving the food away. She asked about a fight that occurred around July 20th with a video circulating on social media. She stated the video had women with pistols fighting for 15 minutes without security breaking it up or the police responding. She stated the applicant needs to communicate with her when incidents occur and there needs to be a plan of abatement because of the items on the police report being on the verge of serious issues. She stated the applicant needs to work with the neighbors to make sure the premises doesn't become a magnet for violent behavior or people with violent tendencies. Ald.

Minutes note: 12 CASERES, Carlos E, Agent for "JALISCO RESTAURANT, LLC", Extended Hours Establishments, Class B Tavern, Public Entertainment Premises, and Food Dealer License Renewal Applications for "JALISCO RESTAURANT" at 1035 S CESAR E CHAVEZ DR. (Expires 11/24/2018) The applicant stated the victim was bothering customers inside the restaurant, security let him out of the bar, but he's not sure what happened after that. He stated that the policy is to remove unruly patrons, lock the door, and call the police. He stated that the incident happened so fast that the manager didn't know what was happening. He stated that the security guards came inside and didn't mention the incident to the manager. He stated that there was never a meeting with the security guards about what happened. He added that he has been in business for 31 years and this is the first time there was an incident like this. He stated that he doesn't know what escalated the incident outside. He added that he always talks to the security, but he doesn't know what made the security guards act in that manner. He stated that he has hired a new security company. He stated that his mother owned the premises at the time and he doesn't recall the incident and they were never served paperwork. The applicant stated he had no idea about the security guard harassing customers or slashing tires. He added that people have not told him about the complaints against the security guards. He stated when there is a complaint they can talk to anyone in the restaurant and it can be resolved right away, otherwise they can leave their name and number and he will call them back. Appearing with the applicant: Atty. Lauren Wick stated the security company went outside the scope of their employment and were terminated. She stated that that the incident was so out of line that the security company was terminated immediately. She added that the incident happened within 1 minute and the premises cooperated with the police. She stated there were always conversations between the security guards and the applicant. She stated that incident was extreme and the security company was fired so it made it hard to have a follow up conversation about why the security guards acted in that manner. She added that the applicant talked to the employees and everything that happened inside the premises was normal. The victim was asked to leave, paid his bill, and then left without incident, so it is unclear what happened down the block. She added that there is a new security plan in place. She stated that this was a default judgement from a decade ago and the details are little known. She added that there was no police report, litigation or adjudication of the facts, and the applicant was not the licensee at the time. She stated that the LLC could make the plaintiff whole, but the applicant is not in control of the LLC. Individual also present: Ald. Perez stated the video was extremely disturbing and the applicant did not contact his office. He added that it seemed like the security company was in charge, not the applicant. He stated that when you work with a security company the applicant is still in charge, not the security company. He stated he would like to see a written security plan prior to Council action. He stated that there should be a process at the restaurant to handle complaints and the phone number of the applicant in English and Spanish. Ald. Coggs stated the video was all over the news and social media, and asked if there was a manger onsite that saw what was going on outside. She asked if the security guards ever mentioned what happened outside. She added that there doesn't seem to be an abatement plan to prevent this from happening in the future, due to the lack of investigation. She stated that she is concerned that this could happen again because there is no concern about what is happening outside the business. She stated that it's hard for her to believe that there were no conversation between the security guards and employees about the incident. She asked if the applicant knew of the allegations about the security guard harassing patrons and slashing tires. She added that there were a lot of comments on social media from customers stating they had been treated poorly by security guard. She stated that it would be wise to have a written plan of staff training to recognize and handle complaints. Ald. Kovac stated there should be a better relationship between the security guards and the employees at the restaurant. He stated that regardless of how unruly the patron was, he was in a wheelchair, and it was not a fight because there are different ways to handle that situation. He stated this reflects poorly on the applicant because he hired the security company. He asked if the applicant knew why the security guards acted so extremely. He asked if the applicant was aware of a $5,000 lawsuit filed in 2007 against the premises by a person in a wheelchair, that has yet to be paid. He asked if the applicant was going to make the plaintiff whole. Ald. Lewis stated the applicant should know everything that is going on in his business and he should know what happened with the security guards. Ald. Johnson stated given events and their notoriety, and the conversation today, it seems that the applicant runs a good business, but hasn't done anything to repair the damage done to the community. He stated it seems like this could happen again tomorrow and plan needs to be put in place that is suitable for the applicant, the customer base, and the community in general. Ald. Johnson moved approval with a 15 day suspension based on the police report and applicant testimony. (Prevailed 4-1, Ald. Kovac voting no)

She asked if there will be licensed and bonded security at the premises. She stated that the applicant should know that a manager needs a manager's license.
