He stated that he was under the impression that his manger's had their bartender licenses and that he thought because Mr. Harris was a registered owner that he didn't need a bartender's license. He stated he wanted to hire Mr. Starks back because he had no issues when Mr. Stark was managing. He stated he conducted background checks and hired a whole new security staff in April. He stated the previous security was being insubordinate and not following the rules. He added that they instituted a "no punch" policy and purchased a new ID scanner to identify problem patrons.
