Minutes note: 12 WITYNSKI, Michael A, Agent for "Family Dollar Stores of Wisconsin LLC", Food Dealer License Renewal Application for "Family Dollar #28545" at 1023 S CESAR E CHAVEZ DR. (Expires 4/23/2019) Kelly O'Day - Indiana - regional manager/director (157 stores across 4 states) Atty. Josh Gimbel - Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin and Brown Ald. Witkowski moved to make the packet of Family Dollar Tobacco Product Training part of the record as Exhibit 1. There were no objections. Ald. Jose Perez - questions why the store doesn't enroll in MARTS. Ms. O'Day notes that that decision to enroll or not is made above her level. Family Dollar thought this would be discussed at their court hearing, not at today's hearing. Family Dollar declined to participate in MARTS despite their sale of cigarettes to a minor. There is also one disorderly conduct in the police report, which was a shoplifter who broke the store glass. The store has armed security and also staff who picks up litter, the frequency of which Ald. Perez feels is inadequate. Litter cleanup is done multiple times a day - twice a day by employees and there is also a private service that comes in 5 times a week. Ald. Perez said that every time he sees the store, it's a mess with litter. Atty. Gimbel said this store is in line to be remodeled in May, which will freshen the whole store up with new interior and exterior light added. Ald. Perez requests on the record that they meet with MPD about crime prevention through environmental design. Ms. O'Day committed to doing a walkthrough prior to the remodel. Ald. Witkowski moved to hold as the store does not have answers. The attorney noted that the citations will be dealt with on the 29th. The attorney would like this approved and dealt with at the next renewal hearing if the store does not take appropriate action. Ald. Witkowski moved to hold with the expectation that if they enroll in MARTS a special will be held prior to the Council on April 16th. Ms. O'Day said they have done a lot to clean up the stores and she is here on the ground in Milwaukee. Ald. Lewis noted that Family Dollar has been cooperative and has gotten some issues resolved, but she is not singing their praises. Ald. Dodd said the local managers can only do so much and she is also indifferent. Ald. Coggs moved for approval with a warning letter based on testimony and the police report and hold open item #4 as still being adjudicated.

Minutes note: 04 WARD, Dyan A, Class B Tavern and Public Entertainment Premises License Transfer Applications with Change of Hours From Opening 11 AM To 12 PM Sun-Sat, Closing 12 AM To 2 AM Sun-Thurs, and Closing 1 AM To 2:30 AM Fri-Sat for "Talk of the Town" at 2302 W State St. Ald. Bauman - he is concerned about the change of hours; there was a homicide and major shootout at this location about a year ago. This is a bar in a 100% residential neighborhood and he feels a midnight closing is necessary to maintain the residential status of this community. He is not in support of a change in hours. Ms. Ward is willing to cooperate in order to keep her business open and she served a 45-day suspension due to the homicide and shooting. She had assumed her hours would go back to the pre-shooting hours after she had served the penalty for a year. Deny change of hours, based on aldermanic testimony, by Ald. Kovac.

Minutes note: 02 JOHNSON, Sunshine N, Agent for "Mitchell Oasis, LLC", Class A Malt License Application and Food Dealer Transfer Application with Change of Hours From Opening at 7 AM, Closing at 11:59 PM To Opening at 8 AM, Closing at 9 PM Sun-Sat for "Capitol Oasis" at 6203 W CAPITOL DR. Ald. Cavalier Johnson at the table - he doesn't oppose the underlying license and the business's grounds are clean and litter-free. The neighbors are not in support of a liquor license at this address due to its proximity to a quiet neighborhood, lack of public parking and concentration. Ald. Murphy - his district is just across the street and he supports Ald. Johnson's decision. Vaun Mayes - 3214 N. 41st St. - works with the applicant to help maintain the business and the cleanliness of the area. Ms. Johnson said that in March 2017 she opened her first store. Ald. Johnson objected at that time to her obtaining a food license due to a concern about increased trash in the neighborhood. She feels she shouldn't be held at fault for the behavior of others before her. She currently sells snacks, dairy items, fruit and processed foods. Opponents: Valerie Sauve - 6730 W. Vienna Ave. - she hears the complaints when traffic and parking are issues. She was only in the store once and never saw fresh fruit; she saw a lot of candy and snacks. The Facebook page emphasizes candy and snacks. She does not object to the underlying food license, but does to the Class A Malt license. Brian Cobundy - 6730 W. Vienna Ave. - he objects to the Class A Malt license as this location is on a busy street and there are a lot of children and students in that area. The business shares space with Boostmobile and there are only two parking spots. Adding alcohol won't add to the vitality or safety of the neighborhood. Stili Klikizos - 3941 N. 62nd St. --she has 2 concerns. One is the traffic on the corner and getting into her property and she objects to adding alcohol. She supports them as a business, but not for the malt license. Julie Hannis - 3509 N. 64th St. - she agrees with previous witnesses Vi Hawkins - 6402 W. Keefe Ave. Parkway - she's a community person and a malt license would only add to the problems experienced by the young. Emma Stamps - 3758 N. 62nd St. - a retired city employee who has noticed a difference in the traffic pattern since Boost mobile and this store came in. There is not enough parking for these businesses and it's led to dangerous traffic situations. She is concerned about "last call for sales" leading to decreased traffic safety. Jennifer Larson - 3800 N. 74th St. - she is concerned about the existing traffic and an alcohol license would just exacerbate this. She also worries about increased trash. Supporters: Val Taylor - 3214 N. 41st St. - it's not her fault Capitol is busy and has a lot of trash and she is being penalized for that. She and her partner donate to Ms. Taylor's youth program. Shanique Bay - 2136 N. 45th St. - she thinks it won't lead to increased traffic as existing customers are requesting this product. Mr. Mayes - the youth who frequent her store are very well-behaved. He didn't hear that anyone met with her or invited her to an association meeting. Ald. Kovac feels the onus is upon the applicant, not the association. The concerns can't be placed at this address, but at other stores prior to her time. She runs a problem-free business. Ald. Lewis is concerned due to the high school across the street and the students frequenting her store, so adding alcohol is a concern. Ald. Coggs finds it rare that opponents think a business is well-run. The applicant may wish to contact the Dept. of City Development for suggestions on adding new merchandise to increase her revenue and what else the neighborhood might need. Ald. Witkowski moved to deny based on aldermanic and neighborhood testimony and concentration of the Class A malt license. There were no objections. The applicant withdrew her application to change the hours. Ald. Coggs moved acceptance of the withdrawal. There were no objections.

There was one person who was throwing empty cans. He is not serving this individual. Ald. Lewis moved to make pictures part of the record as Exhibit 1. Ald. Lewis has some concerns about the cleanliness of the lot so she would encourage them to clean up once more in the afternoon. Prior to this complaint, she hadn't had any complaints. She doesn't see a lot of loitering, but she thinks that cleaning up more often will help. Prior to the Council meeting, she would request that the applicant submit a cleanup plan for the litter.

Robert Bauman at the table - this store has a high loss due to shoplifting and it does provide a valuable service. He has no objection. Atty. Josh Gimbel - Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin and Brown.

Minutes note: 10 SANGHA, Rajmaninder SINGH, Agent for "SNR 05 Inc", Extended Hours Establishments License Application to Open 24 Hrs for "Express at 60th " at 3465 N 60th St. This item was heard at the same time as the application above. Ald. Murphy at the table - he has had numerous citizens opposed to 24 hours at these locations due to litter and trash around the premises, increased traffic in a residential neighborhood and he has never received a call from any neighbors asking for 24 hours at this location. Atty. Paul Christensen - his client has received requests from several customers to be open past midnight. Atty. Christensen said that the litter and panhandling isn't directly related to his client's establishment. Opponents: Brian Klonda - 6730 W. Vienna Ave. - he thinks this is a high-crime area and extended hours will bring in more criminals. Neither gas station is well-maintained and he never buys gas there due to the high volume of litter and it's not a safe area. It's primarily residential except for these 2 businesses on the corner. Vi Hawkins - she lives on Keeve Ave. - the 2 gas stations do not need to be 24 hours and there is already panhandling, loitering and trash in the area already. Julie Hannis - 3509 N. 64th St. - 4 blocks from these establishments - this is not a wide, commercial strip, but a residential area. John Nihist - 3264 N. 62nd St. - he agrees with the previous speakers Valerie Sauve - 6730 W.

Robert Bauman at the table - this is his neighborhood. There is daily loitering in the summertime for hours on end. This establishment is a magnet for disorder, littering, and probably criminal activity. They are a blight and he urges non-renewal. Atty. Vincent Bobot present for the applicant Deven Patel - husband of the applicant Atty. Bobot said his client passed all 4 MARTS inspections and made proof of that part of the record. His clients have removed items conducive to loitering and they are now picking up litter daily, although they may need to increase that. His client does photograph individuals who loiter and he denies service to them. This business has operated for 8 years at this location. Ald.Witkowsk made the information on passing MARTS a part of the record as Exhibit 1. Opponents: Douglas Burna -731 N. 34th St. - he is tired of the loitering, panhandling, litter and the trash, which has only gotten worse over time. He would like this store gone; 90% of the time when he goes past there is something going on - litter on the premises, public drinking, litter from the store on in the area Karen Burns -- 3130 W. Wells St. - there is always a crowd outside up until the time of closure. She finds a lot of small liquor bottles on her corner property and can often see that they are coming from this store. Laura Sue Moser - 3209 W. Wells St. - the photos are already in the file. Her B&B has lost customers as they drive past 35th and Wells, due to the unsafe neighborhood and people loitering. Panhandlers approach their guests as they are getting out of their cars, she's witnessed public urination, arguing and unsafe actions due to drinking. This liquor store is destroying what she is working on and feeds into the negative rather than the positive. Rick Moser - 3209 W. Wells St. - he agrees with his wife and he's surprised no-one has ever been killed at 35th and Wells due to the parking and he sees the proliferation of liquor bottles in yards. Dwayne Stokes - works with Near West Side Partners - he is a security ambassador in the community. The have seen mobile drug use from across the street to his building, they tell him folks are loitering outside, they wait 10 minutes and nothing is done. He also fails to pick up trash just stating "It's already been picked up." Bobby McCray - Community Safety Speciailist for Near West Side Partners - he has spent a lot of time working with the police on the complaints about this establishment. In the hot months, there are always folks loitering by this establishment. They have reached out, but the owners have never responded. Keith Stanley - Near West Side Partners - concern is that this establishment isn't proactive. This is the front door to the Concordia neighborhood. Ted Cuzick - 7227 N. 32nd St. - he is a recovering addict and in the past he used this facility to get money by panhandling. Mr. Patel said when he sees loiterers he tells them to leave; sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. He does not serve those who loiter. He allows the police access to a vacant area on his second floor to observe. He works there all the time and tries to control everybody. They sell liquor, chips, soda, tobacco and bus passes. He is willing to fully cooperate with the neighborhood, hire private security, re-double his anti-litter effects and cooperate with the police. Ald.
