Sean Finnegan stated the call on November 18th epitomizes the complaints when music and vibrations are heard, but cannot be confirmed. He stated that there was a lightning strike earlier this year that caused damage to the AV equipment. He added that neighbors to the north were complaining about noise, and the system had to be recalibrated. He stated the applicant is working with a sound engineer to deal with the noise and reconfigured everything. He stated the windows in the back are old historic windows and that's where the sound is likely coming from, they plan to replace and sound proof the windows. He added there are no plans for the wall because the sound engineer stated the windows are the issue because the sound bounces off the windows in to the alley and creates an echo chamber.

He added that the applicant is trying their best to find a solution. Denato Salvo 850 E Orchard Ct Oak Creek, WI stated there was a lightning strike in June that fried the sound system.

He stated when he met with the sound engineer and there was a lot of sound leaking from the back of the building. He stated that the premises has been in operation for 4 years and he heard noise complaints before but they were able to solve the problems with sound processors. He stated the process with the architect will take 4-6 weeks. He stated that because of Thanksgiving the sound engineer hasn't been to Ms. Donegan's home. He stated after the last hearing he disconnected 2 subs, removed 3 speakers, and turned everything down. He stated the changes will cost $35,000, will put acoustic mats under the speakers, and will turn the music down until a solution is found. He added that he would close Thursdays until the issues are resolved. Individual also present: Ald. Bauman stated the simplest solution is to turn the music down, and the music doesn't need to be as loud as it can possibly be. Ald. Bauman asked Ms. Donegan how long has she lived there have, and how long have there been noise issues. He stated neighbors have returned with strong testimony and the application was returned to committee because the applicant stated there was a plan. He added that he hasn't heard a plan to address the noise issues. He added that the windows need to be replaced by December 18th and the neighbors should contact him regarding any noise differences. Individuals present in opposition: Johnna Scorsa 715 N Milwaukee St Apt 205 stated Mr. Salvo came to her apartment in June to hear the music. She stated the bass can be heard and felt on Friday and Saturday nights and she has called MPD 4 times, including on November 23rd, when MPD responded the officer stated his body cam would not be able to pick up the vibrations. She stated the noise has caused anxiety lack of sleep for her and her boyfriend, and her boyfriend wears headphones to try and drowned out the noise.

She stated she received a call from Mr. Salvo who stated the audio engineer would be contacting her, but no one has contacted her since. She added that she has a video of the noise on her cell phone.

She added that she can hear noise throughout her condo, not just in the rear bedroom facing the alley. She added that she bought her condo in October 2016 and the noise has gotten much worse in the last 11-12 months. She stated that she would be happy to have anyone come in to her unit to find a long term solution to the noise issue. She added that she has a friend who previously worked at the premises who stated they turned the music up throughout the night. Ald. Lewis asked how long the premises has been in operation, and if this is the first time the applicant has heard of noise issues. She stated that the architect should take a look at the wall as well. She stated that she hasn't seen a good faith effort and complaints are still happening. She added that there needs to be a long term solution so the residents don't have to be dealing with the noise. Ald. Coggs asked what the plans are for the shared wall. She asked what the time frame was for these changes. Ald. Kovac stated he was expecting more from the applicant than "we have a plan, to have a plan". He added the real solution is to turn the music down so the neighbors can sleep at night. He asked if the music can be lowered massively until the architect is hired and the work is done. Ald. Lewis moved approval with a 15 day suspension based on the police report, and aldermanic, applicant, and neighborhood testimony. (Prevailed 3-0-1, Ald. Coggs abstaining)

181015 12.MotionSubstitute motion revoking the Recycling, Salvaging, or Towing Premises license of Anthony Lopez, agent for Abyss Towing LLC for the premises at 960 W Armour Avenue doing business as "Abyss Towing" in the 13th aldermanic district.

Minutes note: Appearing with the Licensee: Atty. Dan Sanders stated that this is the livelihood of the licensee and is still in the learning process. He stated that when the licensee was responding to Mr. Clark on the phone that he was trying to tell him that while they have to provide the drop fee, Mr. Clark has to provide the proper documentation. He stated that in 2018 several drops were offered. He provided the records from 2018 billing. He stated that the licensee does approximately 1,000 tows per year. He stated in January there were 6 salvage cars and in March there were 68. He stated the incidents of people coming up during a tow and asking for their car back is rare. He stated of the 50 incidents the ones that indicate "no fee" or "return for free" were often free returns due to the error of the management. He stated that Mr. Strehlow did a lot of drops via credit card and there were a couple in 2018 and 6 in late 2017. He explained the process of the receipts, tow cards, and fees. He stated that more encounters are when a manager asked for the vehicle to be dropped. He stated there were 9 times this year where a drop fee was given. He provided 2017 records and receipts, indicating 15 drop fees. Ald. Dodd moved to enter in to the record as exhibit #1 the 2017 records and receipts. (Prevailed 4-0) He stated that the face to face encounters with people while being towed are the exception, not the norm. He added that the majority of the face to face encounters are tense and violent. He stated that Mr. Clark did get in to his car and start it on the night in question. He stated that the ordinance states there needs to be a signed waiver, but there is no City approved waiver form, and most people don't want to sign anything. He added that they have a draft waiver form that they can send to Chief Morales. He stated that their customers are depending on them, but it's not an easy job to do. He stated the drivers are confronted with drunk, angry people all the time. He stated a revocation for one incident in 3 years is unduly harsh, and a warning letter or suspension would be more appropriate. He stated that no one was deceitful to the committee. He stated the records for 2017 and 2018 are consistent, and Mr. Strehlow gives cars back for free. He added the licensee had previous unrecorded phone calls with Mr. Clark. He stated that Stephanie Lampone 2214 S 60th St stated sometimes the management asks for cars to be towed in error. She stated that sometimes the manager hasn't given the tenant the parking permit. She stated that a tow card is attached to the receipt with a tow number. She stated that Mr. Clark came to the tow lot and filmed her and called multiple times, and didn't want to provide his ID or title when he picked up his car. She stated the business is a family business with only 6 trucks, and they are picky about the drivers they hire. Individual also present: Peter Knox stated the licensee has done over 1,000 tows per year for the last few years. He stated of the 46 records provided by the licensee, for City authorized tows, 9 receipts had "drop", 28 had "drop, give back for free", and the remaining 9 had different things. He stated DPW looked at follow up calls regarding drop fees. He stated that there were 3 calls back to Parking Enforcement regarding cars not being towed with the following notes: 1 released to owner, 1 owner moved vehicle, and Abyss did not have the vehicle. He added that DPW is looking at a standardized form when a vehicle is given a drop fee. Ald. Lewis asked how to match a receipt to a towed vehicle because some of the receipts aren't filled out completely. She stated she found it curious that with all the records were submitted, Mr. Clark was not offered the drop fee or have his car dropped for free, even though they do it all the time according to the records that were provided in exhibit #1. She added that the statements that Mr. Clark should know the law were a flagrant disregard for a customer. She added that it's a poor business practice and goes against the legal obligation of the licensee. She added that the nature of the business does lend itself to confrontations with customers. Ald. Kovac stated what he was looking for was the very specific records in compliance with the city ordinance regarding the drop fee. He added that the law was trying to be as thorough as possible. He stated that he feels the response to the revocation complaint wasn't truthful. He stated the committee generally looks at the whole circumstances surrounding incidents and integrity is a big part of the judgement call the committee has to make. He stated he was most concerned about the call with Mr. Clark where the drop fee is discussed, and it made him disbelieve Mr. Strehlow's testimony, because Mr. Lopez never said a drop fee was offered to Mr. Clark on the phone call. He added that this is a citywide issue and the legislative intent was to deal with the behavior of tow companies and to hold them accountable because of the complaints from residents. He stated the law was to encourage good behavior by tow companies. He stated that he does not see a consistent pattern of following the law or the believable fact pattern of the night in question, corroborating Mr. Clark's testimony. Ald. Dodd moved to enter the 2018 records provided by the licensee as exhibit #2. (Prevailed 4-0) Ald. Dodd moved to enter in to the record the DPW response as exhibit #3. (Prevailed 4-0) Ald. Kovac moved for revocation based on the revocation complaint and licensee and DPW testimony. (Prevailed 3-1, Ald. Coggs voting no)
