He added that this corporation could care less about this store and they would never know they lost this store. He stated there is fighting, shoplifting, loitering, littering, drug dealing, and other nuisance activities. He added that his neighbors and his wife shop at this premises. He stated that last year he heard the same excuses and there are now other businesses can supply most of the same products.

Bobby McQuay - Near West Side Partners stated he has checked in on the premises 10-15 times in the last year to make purchases and check out the store.

He added that a lot of his resources are being used to intervene in fights, chronic loitering, and shoplifting activities. He stated that he is in support of a heavy suspension or nonrenewal. He added that communication with the district has been a challenge and the parking lot is not being maintained. He stated that a big issue is that there's more cameras outside than inside. Ald. Lewis stated there is always the same type of issues at these locations and the premises is beneficial to the company. She added that this should be a good, healthy, and safe environment for customers, but there have only been changes in leadership. Ald. Borkowski stated management is taking this store for granted, and they should be having weekly meetings with Ald. Bauman, Capt. Norman, and Near West Side Partners. Ald. Kovac stated last year the Committee was told the landscaping, loitering, and littering would improve, and nothing has changed. He added that these issues have been effecting the neighborhood on a daily basis and there is a lack of accountability. Ald.

He added that he received tickets for overcapacity, but there was no way there was 167 people in the premises. He stated that the police had not been to his bar for 2-3 years before last year.

He added that they heard shots but no one was outside when they went outside to look. He added that he has 3 armed security guards. He stated that he has owned the premises for 14 years and never had a problem. He added that all of the incidents happened in the last 3 months. He stated that he doesn't understand the noise nuisance because there's no houses next to his premises, and he's always had the same sound system. He added that the incidents occurred in the area surrounding his premises. He stated that he drinks in the bar on the weekends because the premises is not open during the week. He added that he's probably just going to start closing at midnight and will not drink while his business is open. He stated that he hasn't had any police contact since the meeting at the district. He added that everybody needs a chance and that he can change. Individuals also present: Dameon Ellzey - 15th District Legislative Assistant stated Ald. Stamper is concerned about the safety of the public. He added that the safety of the public is not being considered when the applicant is intoxicated every time the police come to check. He stated that the trajectory of the incidents taking place, including the shooting in March, after all the police contacts leads Ald. Stamper to believe that there won't be a change. He added that the management of the premises has gone down and doesn't believe the safety of the public is a priority for the applicant. He stated that Ald. Stamper requests nonrenewal. Individual present in opposition: Capt. Norman stated this premises has had overcapacity and noise nuisance issues. He added that he instructed his officers to pay attention to the bar because of the complaints about noise, loitering, and other nuisance behavior. He stated that every time officers make contact with the applicant, he is intoxicated. He added that every time his officers spoke with the applicant the contacts were always negative. He stated that this behavior is unacceptable from a business owner. He added that there is a concern that the applicant was unaware of what is going on at the premises because he was intoxicated. He stated that it wasn't a matter of if, but when a serious incident would occur; and then there was a triple shooting. He added that he believes the applicant will not change his behavior and he requests nonrenewal. He stated that he points out the problems, but does not tell applicants what to do or how to run their premises. He added that tavern checks have occurred after the meeting at the district. Ald. Lewis stated she is uncomfortable with the applicant's responses of the conspiracy theory and it is rare for a captain to come forward and ask for nonrenewal. She added that the applicant doesn't have a plan of abatement or any type of way to improve operations. She stated there have been so many incidents and it doesn't seem that the applicant is taking ownership of the problems. Ald. Lewis moved nonrenewal based on the police report, and applicant, aldermanic, and police testimony. (Prevailed 5-0)

Jason Luczak stated he is working out the business arrangement between the applicant and Mr. Ray. He added that there is an abatement plan and that the premises has been closed since the March 8th shooting. He stated that night there was a DJ that brought his own security that lead to issues with weapons getting in to the premises. He added that they will no longer allow people to provide their own security, be purchasing metal detectors, ID scanners, will be hiring a different security company, will notify District 7 of any large events that are occurring, and will be enforcing their no weapons policy. He stated that this has been a business that has been running for a very long time and has only received a warning letter in 2016. He added that they accept responsibility for the incident and want to improve going forward. He stated that he would like a substantial suspension because the video is disturbing. He added that the there is a reverse incentive for businesses to provide video because it can be used against their license. He stated that the applicant and Mr. Ray were cooperative and are willing to do anything to keep the premises open. He added that the incident is egregious and the Committee should not impose the worst penalty possible. Michael Ray 4750 N Hopkins St stated he apologizes for the situation that happened, but all he can do is ask for help. He added that he will give MPD access to his cameras and he deserves another chance because he's never been involved in a venue of this size before. He stated that he is willing to do whatever is necessary. He added the agreement was supposed to change months ago but there have been issues with the applicant's sole proprietorship. He stated that it's not fair to be punished after the first incident because he doesn't have the chance to rectify the situation. Individual also present: Andrea Pratt - 1st District Legislative Assistant stated Ald. Hamilton is not in support of the renewal because of the March 8th incident on the video. The meeting recessed at 4:21 PM The meeting reconvened at 4:37 PM Ald. Hamilton stated the video showed a dancer not properly dressed, an underage person in the premises, and the number of people that were in possession of firearms inside the premises. He added that he couldn't even count the number of people while firearms and there was shooting inside the premises and outside. He stated that the underage patron was a central player in the shooting, was over served, and needed help leaving the premises. He added that he has been in contact with the applicant and he has a long standing relationship with the premises. He stated that this single shooting incident justifies nonrenewal, and he does not have the confidence that the current management can fix these issues. He added that the plan of action is not detailed enough to deal with the issues that occurred in the video. He stated that people felt comfortable being in the premises with firearms and the dancer's clothing violations were accepted. He added that there is a sense of lawlessness that spills over in to the neighborhood. Capt. Murphy stated he agrees with Ald. Hamilton and there seemed to be a collusive agreement between the applicant and Mr. Ray. He stated the incident was egregious and he's surprised that more people weren't shot. Ald. Kovac stated he hasn't seen the video and this is less about the video and more about the over served and underage patron being a central participant in the incident. He added that this is likely to happen again under current management. Ald. Kovac moved nonrenewal based on the police report, and aldermanic, police, and applicant testimony. (Prevailed 5-0)
