She also said for the record that she is cooperative with the police. Individuals also present: Mr. Ellzey from the 15th district’s office said that it seems that this business is getting many unsolicited police visits just like the last year and, wonders if license checks are done with the same frequency across the board. He added that regardless of why the police is there, that there should be compliance with the police and that with that in mind, and that the security guards have been fired, he recommended renewal with a warning letter. Ald. Spiker asked how the applicant communicate with the security regarding the police coming into the establishment because the security guards are not cooperative. Ms. Harris said that the security guards are no longer working there and that she wants to run a business with an open policy. Ald. Spiker asked if there is a manager when she is not there. Mr. Harris said that the manager is her husband. She added that they both talked to the team and security guards, and that this issue has been resolved and that they are moving forward. Ald. Spiker asked if the item 14. is inaccurate. The applicant said that it is inaccurate because nothing happened inside her business. Mr. Ellzey said that he wanted to clarify that the assaulted person did not say that the incident happened inside the bar. He said that the police report says that it was the crowd who said it. He added that this business has been part of the community and, that they will help and support this business to remain open. Ald. Coggs moved renewal with a warning letter based on the police report and recommended the office of Ald. Stamper to follow with the police why this establishment has gotten so many license checks.
