After calling a special public hearing last month to discuss the repeated violations made by Mingles Lounge for serving alcohol to minors, the city's Finance Committee is asking that the city attorney petition the District Court to suspend Mingles liquor license for a period of no more than 30 days.
The full city council will vote on Monday whether or not to pass the resolution.
Mingles sent a letter to city council asking to find an alternative solution. Councilman Jim Brown said that he currently favors the resolution, but an alternative solution is a possibility.
"You need to punish the people that own the liquor license, but then you have to have a certain amount of compassion for their employees and I think they said they have 12 or 13 employees out there and to shut them down for 30 days, I need to weigh that in my mind. Would that be a good thing to do? I'm not really certain that it would be and perhaps there's some other alternatives there that might work," Brown said.
