He stated he wants to meet with the neighbors more often, MPD and Ald. Bauman. He stated they will stop serving alcohol, turn off the music, and the lights on 30 minutes prior to closing. Appearing with the applicant: Atty. Michael Maistelman stated the applicant takes full responsibility for continuing the $1 bomb night, in violation of the plan of operation. He stated that because the applicant didn't get anything in writing he thought they could continue to have $1 bomb nights. He stated that there is no police report, they have no occupancy issues, they have a good relationship with MPD, they have taken over 250 fake IDs, they have passed MPD checks with minors, all of their bartenders are licensed, and the parking is under control. He added that they're tried to reach out to the condo association, but they're not sure who exactly to contact. He stated that on Earth Day they do a neighborhood clean up in the Third Ward. He added that MPD Code Red can meet with the applicant to review their security plan. He added that there are no police reports and no communications from the neighbors since April. He stated that a 30 day suspension is harsh given the circumstances and he would like a warning letter. He stated that he will provide a copy of the updated plan of operation to the Committee, the neighbors, Ald. Bauman, and MPD. Michael Fierstence 1680 A N Franklin Pl stated that neighbors are contacting MPD and city officials instead of the premises directly, so they're not always aware of issues.

He added that people will enter and exit on Buffalo St. He stated that they're open to hiring off-duty MPD officers. Individual also present: Ald. Bauman stated there should not be this level of disorder on a Tuesday night. He stated there has been compelling testimony and Tuesday nights are outrageous. He recommends nonrenewal unless Tuesday night ends at 11 PM or 12 AM. He stated that that level of noise is on school night is unacceptable. He stated that it is not MPD's job to police the premises and their patrons. He added that a 30 day suspension is in order based on the compelling testimony and having the same discussion last year with the same assurances and that things are getting worse, not better. He stated this is an escalating problem. Individuals present in opposition: Mike Guertin 234 N Broadway St #403 stated he moved in in March and has been consistently woken up between 11 PM and 2 AM on Tuesday nights in to Wednesday mornings. He added that most of the noise is people coming and going from the premises. He stated that he's called the police about fights and traffic. David Jensen 234 N Broadway St #203 stated he's called the police about the premises numerous times, but they just circle the block. He stated that he listed his apartment to move. He stated that Tuesday is the worst night for noise because of people leaving. He stated that he was shocked about the amount of noise after bar close. Robin Thompson 234 N Broadway St #416 stated people hangout in their cars in the alley before they go in to the premises. She stated there are after parties going on after bar close in the neighborhood and it's completely unacceptable. She added that the residents aren't the ones creating the problems, it's the patrons. She added that she can provide the management company information to the applicant. She stated that the applicant told her they would have 8 security guards patrolling on Tuesday nights and she has not seen any. Sheldon Garrison 234 N Broadway St #405 stated he's worked with the applicant in the past to try and address some of the issues. He stated the noise on Tuesday is awful and out of control. He stated there are fights and people partying in the streets until after 2 AM and it's unacceptable. He stated that calls to the police go unanswered. He added that people smoke outside in the front of the premises and should be moved to the alley. He stated the premises is operating different from the original business plan submitted. He stated that the noise and disorder on Tuesday has gotten worse over the 4 years that he's lived there. He stated he's seen people drinking, smoking, and having sex outside. Fred Heller 234 N Broadway St #213 stated he has witnessed the same issues as the previous speakers. He stated that the security guards are not being proactive by asking patrons keep the noise down.
