No Bookmarks Exist.
What? You look a little British. 00:00:01
He's been a hooter. 00:00:05
That picture Is this real? Yeah. 00:00:08
Free Council to order. 00:00:11
Council members have a chance to look over the minutes and so is there a motion to approve? 00:00:15
Motion Second, Motion second, Say aye. 00:00:21
Minutes Approved. 00:00:25
OK. Mr. Mills, start with you today. 00:00:27
Alright, good afternoon Mayor and Council. We have three applications today. 00:00:38
The first one is for Black Warrior Burgers LLC. It was table last meeting DBA grandstand. 00:00:43
They apply for allows retail liquor. 00:00:49
License going in the old Will Hagens. 00:00:52
My second application is for. 00:00:58
Racked up LLC DBA crew lounge. 00:01:00
Going at 6571 Hwy. 69 S Suite A. 00:01:04
They're applying for a lounge. Retail liquor is the old Luby's restaurant that are going in. 00:01:07
And. 00:01:14
So that to that restaurant. Not there anymore. No Luby's in Alberta now. 00:01:15
Oh, oh, Oh yeah. OK. I'm just thinking out. Yes, Sir. And Sir the the first one. Yes, Sir. Ohh. Will Higgins, is that the same? 00:01:19
The group that came before and then. 00:01:29
Withdrew and they're coming back. Originally got approved for restaurant retail liquor and now they're applying for allowance 00:01:32
liquor license number. 00:01:36
This is what Chief is asking us to. 00:01:41
Table. 00:01:44
Let's see, we have a. 00:01:45
What is that again, Tony? It's a. 00:01:48
This. 00:01:51
You have a condition because I think Chief Blankley had asked that we is that the 1 Brandy, so the conditional use hearing is 00:01:52
going to be under unfinished business. 00:01:57
And then the alcohol license is under public hearings, is that right? Yes, correct. 00:02:01
Actually, and chief is the other way around. Yes, alcohol is on the unfinished business. Conditional use is on the public here. 00:02:06
OK. And the chief had had asked if we could would table that for a week. Yeah. 00:02:13
Alright. 00:02:20
Because he wanted to be here. 00:02:22
OK. 00:02:23
Alright, and my third application tonight is going to be Kirkland's Incorporated, DBA, Rhythm and Brews. 00:02:26
2310 4th St. They apply for the lounge retail liquor license. 00:02:33
Any questions, Mr. Mills? 00:02:40
Just one other question. Yes, Sir. 00:02:43
Art. 00:02:45
Are there different parameters being brought to us? 00:02:46
By the bar Will Hawkins and what we talked about originally. So originally it was a restaurant license and a restaurant retailer. 00:02:49
You said that, yes, sorry, we're trying to get back and thinking. 00:02:54
Confused about. 00:03:00
What will they be able to do now? 00:03:01
What, you're going to Gastropub? They they came as a special condition? 00:03:04
They came as a special condition for a gastropub that was denied by council. They came back to look at occupancy change, but 00:03:10
before that came to council for consideration, they asked that it be withdrawn. So now they've come back and asked for the lounge 00:03:15
license. 00:03:20
So basically, they won't. 00:03:25
More occupancy now. I'll I'll explain here just OK. 00:03:28
Sorry, I'm. I'm gonna get better back up to speed shortly. Are you fine? Yeah. Is that all? Yes, Sir. Sorry about that. Thank you, 00:03:34
John. Before we leave this topic, Yeah. Mr. Holmes? 00:03:39
You should have an e-mail a couple of days ago on the. 00:03:44
Expansion of business on the patio. 00:03:47
Of I forget so Overland Park view of my district. Yes, you know, walk us through that. Yes, Sir. 00:03:51
The. 00:03:59
The the way staff have considered this is not an expansion and it's not what we have discussed. 00:04:00
Previously when we presented the expansion to Y'all, what we considered in those expansions were, for instance, you approved the 00:04:07
expansion of Rhythm and Bruise last week where somebody acquires additional property next door. 00:04:14
And moves into it or if someone does something maybe builds an addition to their building to increase their occupancy. 00:04:21
Uh, what the establishment at Parkview is doing is there's actually a patio area. 00:04:29
On their property. 00:04:35
The ABC requires that that be approved by the city. The way we have always handled that is through they come to Tony, I believe 00:04:37
then we get the council president to sign off on it. It doesn't, it's not, it's not expanding their property, it's not increasing 00:04:44
the occupancy. It's actually. 00:04:51
If it were. If it were downtown on a sidewalk. 00:04:58
Then they would just get a sidewalk cafe permit, and it wouldn't come to council that way either. But since it's since, it's not 00:05:01
on. 00:05:05
Our property, there's no other mechanism of approval. 00:05:09
So ABC wants us to sign off on hey they can, they can cordon off that area and use it. 00:05:13
OK. I I think that I believe Antonio which you I was briefed that. 00:05:18
It required a letter from the Councilman. 00:05:24
Of the district it was located in. So what it did it previously we've done We'd like the council president signed a letter but. 00:05:28
Since it was in your district we require, I asked them to send a letter to you as a courtesy to let you know what's going on for 00:05:35
your signature as well. 00:05:39
You asked who to send the letter to. 00:05:43
About him I had to present. I had to talk with City Clerk office when we got together. A letter to send to. 00:05:46
The Council president added to yourself as well. 00:05:51
OK, I'm. I'm not. 00:05:58
Sure, I understand, but. 00:06:00
Again, I don't have an objection to that, but. 00:06:02
I would be mindful that given the sensitivity. 00:06:05
Of expansions. And if you don't Marshall Steins, does their capacity expand with the opening of that patio? 00:06:09
If they have to egress through that, if the indoor pages have the egress through the patio, depending on the arrangement, it 00:06:17
could. 00:06:22
It could affect the capacity slightly depending on. 00:06:27
On there, I don't know what the layout actually looks like. 00:06:30
Or if they added it in the indoor. 00:06:33
Pagers actually have the egress through that area. 00:06:36
That it would. 00:06:39
The accumulative objectives flow in that case. 00:06:41
They have. They have requested an expansion of their office. No, not one. And so it's not expanded. 00:06:45
No. 00:06:51
Again, just maintaining that. 00:06:53
Uber sensitivity right now to capacity and occupancy. Thank you. 00:06:56
Anything else, Mr. Mills? 00:07:03
Thank you, Sir. 00:07:05
OK, Zach. 00:07:07
OK. So first up, we have tentative approval for South Shore, which is a planned unit development. 00:07:13
Across from Pinnacle Park. 00:07:20
So just South of the towns of North River, just north of Rock Quarry. 00:07:23
As you can see on the map here. 00:07:27
Um, it's currently outside the city limits. You guys had Annex? Well, it's not currently because you guys had annexed in the city. 00:07:30
And in order to go through the HUD process, they have to be within the city limits. And so now they are. 00:07:38
And now they are going through that PUD process to allow for new. 00:07:43
For a 6 lot single family residential plan unit development, this is Trick Construction. Aaron Sancroft is. 00:07:49
I believe he might have reached out to you, Mr. Crow. 00:07:56
Regarding this. 00:07:59
They will have two off street parking areas per lot. They will have sidewalks and open space and HOA. 00:08:00
The homes are ranging from approximately 1500 to 5000. 00:08:08
As you'll see here. 00:08:12
There's a pretty significant difference. 00:08:14
In one of the houses and then. 00:08:16
400,000 to 1,000,000. 00:08:18
Is the price range so you can see this is the layout of the lot. 00:08:20
You've got the open space there, like kind of at that intersection, which will have a gazebo. 00:08:25
You've got five smaller lots in comparison to the larger lot, which is closer to the lake. 00:08:30
That's probably gonna be your $1,000,000 home, I would assume. 00:08:38
These are the elevations for each of the homes. 00:08:43
And then just that gazebo, which they're going to mimic the towns of North River Gazebo. This was unanimously recommended for 00:08:47
approval in April by Planning Commission. 00:08:51
OK. 00:08:58
And then Next up we have. 00:08:59
This is what you guys were just. 00:09:00
Talking about grandstand, so grandstand is. 00:09:02
Request. You know they're requesting the table for one week so we will table it. But just a history on this as you guys have 00:09:06
clearly asked. 00:09:10
They are a restaurant with an attached bar. Currently they came forward as a gap or to get approval for a gastropub. 00:09:15
At an occupancy of 375, which is what their occupancy limit is currently. 00:09:22
Which was denied by you guys. 00:09:27
Because of such a large occupancy, there was some. 00:09:30
Some concerns there from Chief. 00:09:33
And. 00:09:36
After that they then. 00:09:37
Have been operating for a while, but they also wanted to come in and maybe reduce that occupancy to 200 as the limit. 00:09:40
But be a gastropub. 00:09:46
They decided to pull that request, so that's why you'll never really heard that one. 00:09:47
I think it might have got introduced but was withdrawn. 00:09:52
And then? 00:09:55
Now they are coming back. 00:09:56
In a week to request to be a bar. So not a gastropub to be a bar. 00:09:58
With the 200, so initially this request currently that's being tabled was at the 375. However, Mr. Raji is here and we've spoken 00:10:05
with him and we're going to get together with chief. 00:10:11
He's open to. 00:10:17
Actually possibly going back to that 200 occupancy and opening up that dialogue. So we're going to. 00:10:18
We're going to kind of talk about it a little bit more before getting it to you y'all next week and we'll update you on what that. 00:10:23
What that looks like. OK. And a bar is permitted there, right? It with y'all approval. Yes Sir. 00:10:28
It's not. 00:10:34
As a conditional preclude, it's not. 00:10:35
No, the zoning allows it through a conditional use. Yes Sir. 00:10:38
So we won't go through all that. 00:10:43
Because you guys are familiar. And then this is crew lounge, so this is that other alcohol license you all were. 00:10:45
I'm going to look at today. So this is a hookah bar down 69. SI believe Luby's? Was that the? 00:10:51
The previous restaurant. 00:10:57
In that shopping center. 00:11:00
So they are. 00:11:03
Requesting to be a hookah bar with limit of 21 and up. 00:11:05
And they would all also offer food, so they'll have a a kitchen. 00:11:10
68 is their occupancy, it was their occupancy previously I believe and that is not changing with this new use per fire. 00:11:15
They are going to be open for hours operation 12:00 to 2:00 AM on Sunday and then Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and 00:11:24
Saturday. 00:11:27
6:00 to 2:00 AM. 00:11:31
And they will also be serving food during those times. 00:11:32
So it'll basically be a hookah bar with food and alcohol. 00:11:36
And up 21 and up. 00:11:40
That's essentially what they're asking for. 00:11:41
She frankly spoke to me about this. 00:11:47
Did you have a comment? 00:11:50
Right now, just from the public safety aspect from what we look at as a whole. 00:11:57
We don't feel like we can sustain. 00:12:04
An additional bringing some folks in. 00:12:07
For just another another club. 00:12:10
We're we're at a point now. 00:12:13
Public safety wise. 00:12:14
Now when we have closing times, the area of Skylands already has been a problem. 00:12:16
With crowds leaving. 00:12:21
The boars. This one's going to be down 69 SA little bit, I know, but. 00:12:22
The Clark crowds leaving out, they're actually we have businesses call us about. 00:12:26
You know, we have to close our doors because we got 80 people just showed up in our parking lot. 00:12:30
We're spending up to an hour plus on some of these nights to Patriot. 00:12:34
Period. 00:12:41
The Hillcrest. 00:12:41
Hillcrest Center. 00:12:43
Hillcrest Center. 00:12:45
Ohh. 00:12:47
Just from previous experience, the last lounge license that was in that location didn't turn out very well. 00:12:48
I know it's been probably 20 years ago, but. 00:12:56
Those. 00:12:58
New Orleans flavor in the corner over there. 00:12:59
That that didn't turn out real well. 00:13:03
A parking lot to me after riding around it and looking at it and from previous history there. 00:13:05
There's some safety concerns about where. 00:13:10
Folks can grew up out of sight. 00:13:13
And honestly, now, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we're pulling our officer corps out of the neighborhoods. 00:13:17
And also businesses to. 00:13:23
Basically chase down entertainment. 00:13:25
Disturbances and problems that go on for the majority of the morning. 00:13:27
So we don't have people to keep. 00:13:31
There, there it would. It would. 00:13:35
We won't be able to monitor it. 00:13:37
I may not. 00:13:39
And it's not not just this particular location, but just overall. 00:13:45
The late night entertainment industry, it's, it's, it's, it's it's at a breaking point with us as far as being able to provide a 00:13:48
level of security for the community at large that we really. 00:13:53
Feel comfortable with. 00:13:57
I just don't. 00:13:59
Cheap, likely, and I talked about it and. 00:14:00
I know this feels like a redundant. 00:14:04
Message that I'm delivering everything council recently. 00:14:06
We are forced to believe it. 00:14:10
And. 00:14:13
I am very worried. We're stretching our Police Department way too thin on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. 00:14:13
It's being used against us in recruiting and. 00:14:21
The more establishments wherever we add and expand. 00:14:23
We are going to be calling. We're becoming a de facto security company for them. 00:14:28
And it's taking its toll. 00:14:33
So I hope you will keep that in your calculus as you. 00:14:35
Here this is nothing against the. 00:14:38
I don't nothing against the boron and nothing. 00:14:41
Do we need to adopt A? 00:14:43
You know, as we get on mega developments. 00:14:45
That we need to adopt A moratorium. 00:14:49
On any additional places because. 00:14:52
I would actually prefer. 00:14:55
Like a blanket. 00:14:58
Policy. 00:14:59
It it gets tricky dealing with. 00:15:01
This one, That one, Not this one, because it's more, but OK. This one even that's. 00:15:04
That's the problem. 00:15:10
That up. 00:15:12
Appleseed. 00:15:13
And and I say this every time. 00:15:14
But. 00:15:17
We don't have any police presence. 00:15:18
Presence in my dish. 00:15:20
And it's not your fault. 00:15:23
We just don't have it. 00:15:25
Yeah, had a neighborhood meeting E Park last night. Sibo was saying just that. Same thing, like. 00:15:27
They're gonna start having. 00:15:33
It's basically hold. 00:15:37
But it's residential neighborhoods that are not. 00:15:38
Getting the attention that he can see, both said that they need. 00:15:41
And he's going to make sure they get it now. But. 00:15:44
Part of it the the complaints and the neighbors that were there, and it was a nice crowd too. 00:15:47
Was that? 00:15:53
We're putting our resources on this strip. They're not being seen out of Crescent Ridge Rd. for example, and that's the 00:15:55
perception. 00:15:58
That's a perception. Perception is reality. Yeah, yeah. And then when you know. 00:16:01
Because they don't have, you know. Yeah. 00:16:10
At some point. 00:16:17
Committee. 00:16:19
A fuller discussion about this city has grown tremendously. Our growth is also matching the time where less and less people want 00:16:22
to be police officers. This is a nationwide phenomenon. 00:16:29
We're and and again I know I said it just a few seconds ago but our competition in the county in North Port. 00:16:37
We tackled pay, we've had to take on cars, we're going to be tackling our SA. 00:16:45
But the one thing we can't tackle is. 00:16:50
Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. 00:16:53
On top of it used to be just game days, but now it's just y'all. See the significant reports. 00:16:55
I'm very concerned. We're stretching our people really, really thin and. 00:17:03
It may be I I don't know what how that looks. I don't know what powers we have legally in that realm. 00:17:09
But I think it warrants at least a discussion to put ideas on the table. Never hurts to discuss. 00:17:15
Well, I know I get calls every weekend about speeding on Harbor Rd. E 15th St. E wanting me to have somebody. 00:17:21
Put the police out there. 00:17:30
And I basically tell them there's not any place to put out there, it's. 00:17:31
We have. 00:17:37
We've tried to become as efficient as we can with the manpower that we have when we target targeting things as is as well as we 00:17:38
can, but as far as the old days of being able to say, hey, we got a traffic complaint in this area and a car go out there and sit 00:17:42
for a couple hours. 00:17:46
It's just it's it's not a service that we can provide anymore, regretfully. 00:17:50
Thanks to service that there are some definitely some areas in town that they need that type of service and we just those those 00:17:55
are some of the services we just don't have the manpower of the time to do and based on call volume work the way municipal 00:18:01
government finance should work theoretically and again this is this is you know I can't give you exact numbers but residential. 00:18:07
You would cost one to four ratio. 00:18:14
So whatever taxes are generated, you're getting four times the amount of service. 00:18:17
Inversely though, commercial is supposed to be the 414 to one benefit. 00:18:22
You know, they're they're getting four times the services of the taxes that you're paying and that's why commercial has always 00:18:26
been seen as paying the bills. 00:18:29
If you just isolated. 00:18:33
The How many bars we have in Tuscaloosa 30. 00:18:36
For all restaurant bars. Well, no, not restaurant bars. This is Lee St. 00:18:39
I think it was 29 bars, Being COVID would just liquor licenses. 00:18:46
Really. But then let's add another 15 or 20. Let's say that are restaurant bars. 00:18:51
That form into that, let's say you're dealing with a population of 50 total. 00:18:56
I would think at this point the services that we're providing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. 00:19:02
To the entire population, and I know that's not all. 00:19:07
Would either me or exceed? 00:19:10
The taxes being gained from them. 00:19:12
And then that didn't even put in the calculus. 00:19:15
When we have issues up in Skyrim we have issues and Aleka place or snow, we need to draw some in park wherever. That was why the 00:19:18
main topic was last night. 00:19:24
So. 00:19:31
I think of you and Miss Howard, not to put you on the spot, but I think we need to have a further discussion of this because we 00:19:32
have grown tremendously in the city, which is a good thing. 00:19:36
But. 00:19:42
We had we were struggling to maintain a police force. 00:19:43
With the number of vacancies. 00:19:47
I didn't mean to to hijack this. No, no, Because it was. I mean, like I said, that's what. 00:19:50
The meeting we hadn't Maccabee Center last night. The neighborhood and Sibo put it out really well, that. 00:19:55
You know. 00:20:01
We've got to get back to doing what we can with what we have. 00:20:02
And spend more of the resources in the neighborhoods. 00:20:06
That are having the problems and the. 00:20:08
Constant. 00:20:11
So. 00:20:13
Do we have enough time to like see what a? 00:20:14
Moratorium could look like so that we could because I mean if if this is. 00:20:19
The recommendation then I I would like to make sure that we're following the recommendation, and I know that we are, but. 00:20:24
I just feel like, you know, it would help if we just had one blanket way to determine whether something we should do and then the 00:20:30
community would also know that too automatic. 00:20:34
I agree. I would like attorney Will. 00:20:41
We need to produce that. 00:20:43
Got it. 00:20:45
I don't like being in the business of picking and choosing. They can. They can't. 00:20:47
Let's. 00:20:52
Either its own or it's off. 00:20:53
So we have it on the next public. I mean if I have a couple ideas I've asked actually since we've been sitting here with my staff 00:20:55
to start researching it. I know there is a public safety committee on the 27th. If that's timewise worked for you all, we can we 00:21:00
can have you some good ideas. 00:21:05
If it's all right with, yeah. 00:21:10
So OK, yeah. So is this horrible tonight or just introduction? 00:21:14
This is for a vote. 00:21:17
Tablet. 00:21:21
I would like to say excuse me. 00:21:22
I'm very sorry to interrupt. I'm Bradley Gibney. I'm representing my clients with Brad LLC. 00:21:25
And the other I understand your position. I fully appreciate the police and what all they do. 00:21:31
Could I have it just a moment to? 00:21:39
Speak about a couple of your concerns about this particular location. 00:21:41
Well, what? 00:21:45
Wouldn't the hearing tonight? Yeah, appropriate place you're going to be here tonight. 00:21:46
Before the vote, I mean, yes. Well, I think we're going to tell you we're not going to vote tonight, I feel sure. 00:21:51
Give him a chance to, Yeah, absolutely. 00:21:56
So just just to let let let everybody know my I've got one of the members here Andrea Campbell. 00:21:59
And her and the other members are all. 00:22:06
In law enforcement and have been, I think Andrew's been in it for 14 years. She completely understands. 00:22:09
And wants to make sure they make follow the law and make sure that there aren't any issues. 00:22:15
As it relates to security and the police. 00:22:21
They intend to have somebody working the door at all times, as well as to have security inside and on on Fridays and Saturdays. 00:22:24
Intend to hire additional security and or. 00:22:32
Off duty police officers to work that the the parking area. 00:22:36
And and I say that as as. 00:22:41
Security or so it's not that that that that we're going to put try to put an additional strain on police, but. 00:22:43
If if that's available then they will do that. If not then they will go and and hire outside additional outside security. The 00:22:50
other issue is. 00:22:54
This has been presented as a lounge for one reason, because we're trying to follow the rules with the ABC. 00:22:58
In order to be a restaurant, you have to have so that you have at least 51% of food sales. 00:23:05
We think that we're going to have that. 00:23:11
But. 00:23:14
I don't know. Abundance of caution we're being. 00:23:15
We decided to move to a lounge license. 00:23:18
In the event that it doesn't reach that 51% every month. 00:23:21
So we're gonna And this isn't just a. 00:23:25
Cheeseburger or wings, that kind of thing. This is. 00:23:28
Lamb chops. This is high end food. 00:23:31
That they spend, it's my understanding couple of other locations spend about 50% more on through than they do on alcohol. 00:23:34
So this is not intended to be a lounge per se. This is intended to be a restaurant that serves alcohol. 00:23:42
And. 00:23:48
But just out of abundance of caution, making sure we follow the rules. 00:23:49
We are. We are. 00:23:52
Applying for this as a as a lounge license. 00:23:55
And I will say this one last thing. 00:23:58
That. 00:24:01
We're also going to be a part of the responsible vendor program. Andrew has already taken the class and we're going to be and and 00:24:03
all the other owners and the employees will be doing the same thing. 00:24:07
So what they are doing? 00:24:12
I believe above and beyond of what they should be on trying to make sure that this is not. 00:24:15
Ohh your typical lounge where it's going to put additional. 00:24:20
You know, problems on on the Police Department. 00:24:25
Thank you. 00:24:29
OK. 00:24:30
Thank you. 00:24:30
Alright, and we got one more item for you guys. This is for introduction, but can be adopted following unanimous or with you by 00:24:34
unanimous consent following introduction. 00:24:39
This is a. 00:24:44
80.5 acre annexation. 00:24:45
Located on Old Colony roads, this is across from I think It's Crimson Care or Crime. 00:24:48
It's that new facility off of Old Colony. 00:24:53
A pretty large piece of property there. 00:24:56
Rabin Northridge. 00:24:58
Currently vacant today. They want to come in with that backup. Yes all. 00:25:02
Yeah. 00:25:09
Crimson crossing Ohh just crossing so everything's Crimson and. 00:25:09
This. 00:25:14
I don't see crossings. Where is this normal? 00:25:15
Ohh going up ohh colony toward public like public is there to right. 00:25:18
There's your memory assisted living. That's. 00:25:24
Yes, Sir. 00:25:27
That's that's the middle school. 00:25:29
Yep. 00:25:31
So the Buddy Power billion. 00:25:32
Turn right. 00:25:35
Public property across street has been developed. What's the plan? 00:25:37
So that assisted living, yes. 00:25:41
Yeah. 00:25:44
I'll keep going, sorry. 00:25:45
The plan, I don't recall exactly what the amount of homes was, but yeah, yeah, it's and there's some townhomes mixed in, I think 00:25:49
24 townhomes. There's a open space kind of Greenway in between. 00:25:55
They are actually. 00:26:02
Planning on putting a light in as well. There will be a light on that road. 00:26:03
Where the intersection is, that is directly across from that assisted living facility. There's some commercial to commercial lots. 00:26:09
Directly on Old Colony. 00:26:17
And then they're going to have some. 00:26:19
Stub streets to the South for future development for that property as well. 00:26:21
Quick question, I saw this the other day. 00:26:28
Reminded me to ask the question. 00:26:30
What do our regulations say about width of sidewalk? 00:26:32
So yes, the I believe we would require a four foot sidewalk typically however. 00:26:36
When working with the applicants on their design, they were open to an 8 foot shared multi multi use path. 00:26:43
To mimic kind of what's already there on North Ridge Rd. 00:26:51
OK. Because on the other side where the? 00:26:54
So that's like a four foot. 00:26:57
Yeah, it's tiny I. 00:26:59
Almost first time I saw it, I thought it was a drainage. I agree. 00:27:01
Yeah, and she go very far. 00:27:06
Yeah, I noticed that, so I. 00:27:08
SO1 Gold and that was that was one of our concerns too was you know you've got this path on Northridge and they were open to 00:27:11
actually. 00:27:15
Uh, there's some kind of wetlands issues and like a drainage ditch over there on the east side. 00:27:20
They're not gonna extend that. 00:27:25
Kind of part of the the PUD approval was they weren't going to extend all the way to the end of their property line. 00:27:28
They were gonna actually extend on to the adjacent. I believe that's the mental health board's property all the way to that 00:27:34
intersection. 00:27:38
With a more multi shared use path 8 feet wide. 00:27:42
To then do that though, right? Yes. Yeah, they'll have to work with the cross. Well, it would be on the path. It would be in the 00:27:46
right of way. So they would be developing that. 00:27:50
And then I wanna make sure I heard you correctly. Is there gonna carry it all the way up to Northridge and Ocala? 00:27:56
They're going to carry it all the way up to North Regional Call. Yes, Sir. 00:28:00
And then you'll go across the. 00:28:04
Like to get on the Pettis Randall? 00:28:06
That little place right there. 00:28:09
I think anywhere in our city we have new development and we have opportunities. 00:28:11
Put down sidewalks, pedestrian way. 00:28:16
Wherever we can work to get a minimum of 6 feet if not 8 feet is. Yeah, I agree. I agree. Yeah, well, I mean, we're going through 00:28:18
that code update process currently says is a good. 00:28:24
Good opportunity to bring that up. 00:28:30
Now go watch your path. 00:28:34
How wide are yours out from the Piggly Wiggly going? They're going to be. Well, it's going to be. 00:28:37
Shared path on one side. 00:28:43
And. 00:28:46
Which is 8. 00:28:47
I think that's him. 00:28:50
Then on the. 00:28:52
Side of it with this is going to be. 00:28:54
I believe 8 feet they are, yeah 8 feet I think is the minimum to where you can have, you can have multi use. So essentially. 00:28:57
8 feet is out there. I hope it's good. 00:29:07
Cortana what? 00:29:12
Did we demand gold? But? 00:29:15
On the. 00:29:18
I'm assuming that's the recommended by the. 00:29:20
Don't ask them. 00:29:25
OK. 00:29:28
Alrighty, everybody good with. 00:29:30
Is that? 00:29:32
So. 00:29:36
Alright, Mayor Meadows. Yes Sir. I know we're behind a little bit. I'll, I'll try to move quickly. First I want to recognize Chris 00:29:38
Megs our new. 00:29:41
Executive director of Environmental Services I know, I saw. 00:29:45
Chris Chris knocked the interview out of the park. 00:29:53
And and I was. 00:29:56
Whoever's idea was mayor, I'll give you credit for it, having some of those employees in here for the interview. 00:29:58
That. 00:30:04
That was one. 00:30:05
We need to maybe think about that. 00:30:05
We did that with the police chief and now we've done that with the SD and it's both times have worked out very, very well. I 00:30:08
appreciate you being part of me. 00:30:11
Well, and one thing, I was really impressed when we went. 00:30:16
To introduce Chris. 00:30:19
To the workers. 00:30:22
It was great to say it was unanimous. 00:30:24
But I also had. 00:30:26
Several. 00:30:28
3. 00:30:29
He asked workers that follow me to the door. 00:30:30
And just said that we all want to know how happy we are. 00:30:33
That he was selected so. 00:30:36
That makes me feel good. 00:30:38
You spend a lot of time trying to. 00:30:40
Recently on this as well so. 00:30:42
I'm excited about what he's going to bring. We're trying very we're trying not to over. 00:30:45
You know, inundate him with information right now because we want him to. 00:30:50
Get to know the operations. Build a rapport with our men and women there who work hard every day. 00:30:54
And then we'll build up from there. But I'm excited about what he's going to bring and y'all know Chris, if you need anything, 00:30:59
please reach out to the second is or we're releasing the majority of our town hall schedule for the summer and fall. I think we've 00:31:03
got a slide. 00:31:08
Or we'll have one. There it is that we'll have up tonight as well. 00:31:13
The first one, we're going. We had so much fun at Jax last year with Mr. Bell. We're going back. 00:31:16
That'll be a 7:00 AM. 00:31:22
30 That's an early riser. 00:31:25
Get the coffee and biscuit crowd there. 00:31:29
Bob at the Plaza at 5:30 PM. 00:31:32
Saturday, July 22nd, Mr. Crows District 8:00 AM. 00:31:36
Monday, August 28th at 5:30 PM and Catch Taste and Mr. Tyner's district. We're finalizing with the school system Mr. Lanier and 00:31:40
Miss Howard on Skyland and T CTA. So once we have those times and dates. 00:31:47
We will get that to you. They're all come and go events. They're there. 00:31:55
That just gives people a chance to come in. That's what's been successful over the years. And so we'll be there to answer any 00:31:59
questions that you may have. 00:32:02
And that's all I have is present. We will have two. 00:32:07
Items for executive session. 00:32:10
One of them made to take a little bit of time. OK, I want to go get the other one. 00:32:12
All right. Thank you, Mayor. 00:32:17
Porsche. 00:32:20
And make them introduce themselves. Good idea. Good afternoon, council and mayor. 00:32:32
Have. 00:32:39
Two big things that I want to announce today. First of all, your 311 team is Sweet 16. Today. It's our 16th birthday. 00:32:40
So. 00:32:48
We have been celebrating all day. I brought birthday hats for the team but they won't wear them. 00:32:49
And when Scott came to see us earlier, I had mine on and I forgot. And when I realized I had it on after you left, I was like, I'm 00:32:53
sure he thinks he doesn't know what's going on here, but I just wanted to just love on them publicly. I have such a great team. 00:32:58
You all know that I'm new, so. 00:33:04
I'm still adjusting and they have made it so. 00:33:09
So seamless for me. Jennifer has been here since the beginning. I'll let her introduce herself like me. 00:33:12
Hi, I'm Jennifer Simmons in lock, Portia said. I have been here since. 00:33:19
May. 00:33:23
Of 2007 when 311 was introduced and. 00:33:24
We've heard nothing but good things with the mayor's idea. 00:33:28
And then we have a sale. 00:33:33
I'm Michelle. 00:33:37
I've been here for 13 years. 00:33:38
In February. 00:33:40
Recently reclassified as a senior call taker as well as will. He's on vacation this. 00:33:45
So. 00:33:50
He's playing hooky a little bit, but. 00:33:51
So I have 4 seniors now and I just I just wanted to take a moment to just say out loud how wonderful they are and to acknowledge 00:33:53
them all today. 00:33:57
I try to do this as often as I can, but it's it hits a little different today because it's our birthday, so I just want to 00:34:01
encourage everyone to just. 00:34:04
Popeye, if you can say hi to everyone today, Mayor's already been by. Thank you for coming. 00:34:07
And yeah, I just. 00:34:12
They're great and I just wanted to say it out loud. 00:34:13
We have two. 00:34:22
Latoya as well. 00:34:23
Yes. 00:34:25
The member as well so. 00:34:26
And that makes them. That makes a big difference because I mean I. 00:34:28
I'll be talking to these two. 00:34:31
Hundreds of times she told me that Porsche told me this morning code enforcement, ESD and animal control. 00:34:35
So that's what we're getting, that's the leading calls recently. 00:34:42
Yeah. 00:34:46
That's true. 00:34:47
Hey, Brandy. 00:34:49
Doing. 00:34:51
Alright. 00:34:54
So keeping me on track, I'm trying. So we have two board appointments that we need to discuss today. The first one is going to be 00:34:55
Historic Preservation Commission. 00:34:58
We have Doctor David Nelson, who's from expired back on May 31st. 00:35:03
He's requested to be reappointed. He was initially appointed back in 2009. Keep in mind HBC members, our mayor nominated and 00:35:08
council appointed, he has been serving very well. 00:35:13
The team wishes to have him reappointed, so if it's OK with you guys, we'll have that ordinance on next week. 00:35:18
Force that he has been killed. 00:35:25
Man. 00:35:28
That sounds good. And then the next one is community service programs. 00:35:31
You guys go back with me a couple weeks. We discussed one recommendation that they had. 00:35:35
At the time, they have since then requested to withdraw their recommendation and have someone else for you guys to consider. If 00:35:40
you take a look in front of you, you'll have a resume for Miss or Doctor Marion. 00:35:46
What is it? 00:35:53
And you got a brief little. 00:35:55
Little information about her history. The board would like to move forward with her because of her advanced knowledge or advanced 00:35:58
knowledge of all of the mental health. 00:36:03
Systems throughout Alabama. They think that she would be a very. 00:36:08
Helpful member to the board, if that's OK with you. 00:36:12
I can't imagine well. 00:36:16
I don't. I mean, I I was, I was kind of hoping that. 00:36:18
We could open it up. 00:36:23
Two weeks or anybody would be interested in working community service programs to apply. 00:36:25
That's what we've done in the past. 00:36:30
And I know we, you know, directors. 00:36:32
You know, I I just have a problem with one name is being sent because there's so many people and nothing to get stopped. Mr. 00:36:36
Rosenzweig, she's wonderful and known her. 00:36:40
Many, many years but. 00:36:44
I think it's only right to give. 00:36:46
Others and opportunity, at least. 00:36:49
I'll probably. 00:36:51
I mean. 00:36:53
I plan to vote for Marianne, but let's. 00:36:54
Yeah, put it out there. See what comes in. Is that OK with you all? 00:36:57
They're OK. 00:37:01
Or if y'all wanna just go with her. 00:37:03
I'm happy with with her, but I mean, I'm, I'm OK. 00:37:06
I'm, I'm OK. I mean, she's an impressive resume, so I mean, she'll probably. 00:37:11
I mean, I'm in favor of her, but we want to open up. 00:37:17
Yeah, yeah. 00:37:21
I mean, they're they're both wonderful people. I'm just saying that. 00:37:22
You know. 00:37:25
Sometimes just one name is from a. 00:37:27
I'd like to see more. 00:37:31
What is? Just go with it then. 00:37:35
Emotions No. No. 00:37:38
OK. 00:37:40
All that's happening might be good to move on. 00:37:41
Yeah, we're going with Doctor Rosenstein. Had a lot of issues with this. 00:37:43
Well, I've been a bumpy ride. 00:37:48
Well, it was. It was. 00:37:52
It was. 00:37:55
We're not being talked about. 00:37:58
OK. So we'll have that ordinance on the agenda next week. 00:38:02
I didn't know. 00:38:08
Yeah, so. 00:38:09
I like you, alright. 00:38:11
Alright. 00:38:16
OK, Scott. 00:38:17

we discussed last time, we're going to go ahead and go forward with it today and also have it doubled up. We think we're getting 00:41:09
some. 00:41:13
Some of the movement we're looking for. 00:41:18
On page 31, you'll be authorizing a contract with Blazing Fire and Water. 00:41:20

A topic we discussed in executive session. 00:42:08
Ohh OK. 00:42:12
Farm. 00:42:16
Thank you, Scott. You got projects, finance, admin, no properties. I did speak with Chief Wilson. 00:42:20

Said that they wanted to. 00:42:33
He's in Ghana right now. He's getting, he's getting ready. He was on the bus going to. 00:42:37
Get ready to spend the night, but and have it be on a safari tomorrow so God wonderfully not plan a camera somewhere in his 00:42:42
backpack. 00:42:46

We're thinking about putting a diplomatic outpost. Yeah, I think we should have a diplomatic. 00:42:54
I can recommend that committee, committee. Does that have to go through since I know Matthew is listening. 00:43:01
Yeah. 00:43:08
Did that go through financial projects? I think, I think I could get the vote because that's a big project. 00:43:10
I think you need to go through projects. 00:43:16
Yes, Sir. I think we should talk about that, but we'll look at that. 00:43:19
But the chief is having a great time. 00:43:23
He will hear that. And it said, of course out of love. Absolutely, absolutely. I said out of love. 00:43:27
And with that? 00:43:34
Yeah, we gotta listen. We got capital projects work session Thursday. 00:43:37

Yeah. So you've been using it. Is there a motion? We go into executive session. I'll make a motion, OK. 00:43:54
Yes, Sir. As your city Attorney and attorney license practice law in the state of Alabama, I can certify that these topics for 00:44:00
executive session are appropriate as to excuse to discuss the consideration the governmental body is willing to offer or accept 00:44:04
when considering the purchase sale exchange. 00:44:09
These are market value of real property, as well as to discuss preliminary negotiations involving matters of trade or commerce in 00:44:14
which the governmental body is in competition with private individuals or entities or other governmental bodies, and the 00:44:19
discussions would have a detrimental effect upon the competitive position of the party. 00:44:24
Gave them a motion second, all in favor. Say aye, aye. Any opposed if you're not part of this executive session? 00:44:30

Alright, good afternoon Mayor and Council. We have three applications today. 00:00:38
The first one is for Black Warrior Burgers LLC. It was table last meeting DBA grandstand. 00:00:43
They apply for allows retail liquor. 00:00:49
License going in the old Will Hagens. 00:00:52
My second application is for. 00:00:58
Racked up LLC DBA crew lounge. 00:01:00
Going at 6571 Hwy. 69 S Suite A. 00:01:04
They're applying for a lounge. Retail liquor is the old Luby's restaurant that are going in. 00:01:07
And. 00:01:14
So that to that restaurant. Not there anymore. No Luby's in Alberta now. 00:01:15
Oh, oh, Oh yeah. OK. I'm just thinking out. Yes, Sir. And Sir the the first one. Yes, Sir. Ohh. Will Higgins, is that the same? 00:01:19
The group that came before and then. 00:01:29
Withdrew and they're coming back. Originally got approved for restaurant retail liquor and now they're applying for allowance 00:01:32
liquor license number. 00:01:36
This is what Chief is asking us to. 00:01:41
Table. 00:01:44
Let's see, we have a. 00:01:45
What is that again, Tony? It's a. 00:01:48
This. 00:01:51
You have a condition because I think Chief Blankley had asked that we is that the 1 Brandy, so the conditional use hearing is 00:01:52
going to be under unfinished business. 00:01:57
And then the alcohol license is under public hearings, is that right? Yes, correct. 00:02:01
Actually, and chief is the other way around. Yes, alcohol is on the unfinished business. Conditional use is on the public here. 00:02:06
OK. And the chief had had asked if we could would table that for a week. Yeah. 00:02:13
Alright. 00:02:20
Because he wanted to be here. 00:02:22
OK. 00:02:23
Alright, and my third application tonight is going to be Kirkland's Incorporated, DBA, Rhythm and Brews. 00:02:26
2310 4th St. They apply for the lounge retail liquor license. 00:02:33
Any questions, Mr. Mills? 00:02:40
Just one other question. Yes, Sir. 00:02:43
Art. 00:02:45
Are there different parameters being brought to us? 00:02:46
By the bar Will Hawkins and what we talked about originally. So originally it was a restaurant license and a restaurant retailer. 00:02:49
You said that, yes, sorry, we're trying to get back and thinking. 00:02:54
Confused about. 00:03:00
What will they be able to do now? 00:03:01
What, you're going to Gastropub? They they came as a special condition? 00:03:04
They came as a special condition for a gastropub that was denied by council. They came back to look at occupancy change, but 00:03:10
before that came to council for consideration, they asked that it be withdrawn. So now they've come back and asked for the lounge 00:03:15
license. 00:03:20
So basically, they won't. 00:03:25
More occupancy now. I'll I'll explain here just OK. 00:03:28
Sorry, I'm. I'm gonna get better back up to speed shortly. Are you fine? Yeah. Is that all? Yes, Sir. Sorry about that. Thank you, 00:03:34
John. Before we leave this topic, Yeah. Mr. Holmes? 00:03:39
You should have an e-mail a couple of days ago on the. 00:03:44
Expansion of business on the patio. 00:03:47
Of I forget so Overland Park view of my district. Yes, you know, walk us through that. Yes, Sir. 00:03:51
The. 00:03:59
The the way staff have considered this is not an expansion and it's not what we have discussed. 00:04:00
Previously when we presented the expansion to Y'all, what we considered in those expansions were, for instance, you approved the 00:04:07
expansion of Rhythm and Bruise last week where somebody acquires additional property next door. 00:04:14
And moves into it or if someone does something maybe builds an addition to their building to increase their occupancy. 00:04:21
Uh, what the establishment at Parkview is doing is there's actually a patio area. 00:04:29
On their property. 00:04:35
The ABC requires that that be approved by the city. The way we have always handled that is through they come to Tony, I believe 00:04:37
then we get the council president to sign off on it. It doesn't, it's not, it's not expanding their property, it's not increasing 00:04:44
the occupancy. It's actually. 00:04:51
If it were. If it were downtown on a sidewalk. 00:04:58
Then they would just get a sidewalk cafe permit, and it wouldn't come to council that way either. But since it's since, it's not 00:05:01
on. 00:05:05
Our property, there's no other mechanism of approval. 00:05:09
So ABC wants us to sign off on hey they can, they can cordon off that area and use it. 00:05:13
OK. I I think that I believe Antonio which you I was briefed that. 00:05:18
It required a letter from the Councilman. 00:05:24
Of the district it was located in. So what it did it previously we've done We'd like the council president signed a letter but. 00:05:28
Since it was in your district we require, I asked them to send a letter to you as a courtesy to let you know what's going on for 00:05:35
your signature as well. 00:05:39
You asked who to send the letter to. 00:05:43
About him I had to present. I had to talk with City Clerk office when we got together. A letter to send to. 00:05:46
The Council president added to yourself as well. 00:05:51
OK, I'm. I'm not. 00:05:58
Sure, I understand, but. 00:06:00
Again, I don't have an objection to that, but. 00:06:02
I would be mindful that given the sensitivity. 00:06:05
Of expansions. And if you don't Marshall Steins, does their capacity expand with the opening of that patio? 00:06:09
If they have to egress through that, if the indoor pages have the egress through the patio, depending on the arrangement, it 00:06:17
could. 00:06:22
It could affect the capacity slightly depending on. 00:06:27
On there, I don't know what the layout actually looks like. 00:06:30
Or if they added it in the indoor. 00:06:33
Pagers actually have the egress through that area. 00:06:36
That it would. 00:06:39
The accumulative objectives flow in that case. 00:06:41
They have. They have requested an expansion of their office. No, not one. And so it's not expanded. 00:06:45
No. 00:06:51
Again, just maintaining that. 00:06:53
Uber sensitivity right now to capacity and occupancy. Thank you. 00:06:56
Anything else, Mr. Mills? 00:07:03
Thank you, Sir. 00:07:05
OK, Zach. 00:07:07
OK. So first up, we have tentative approval for South Shore, which is a planned unit development. 00:07:13
Across from Pinnacle Park. 00:07:20
So just South of the towns of North River, just north of Rock Quarry. 00:07:23
As you can see on the map here. 00:07:27
Um, it's currently outside the city limits. You guys had Annex? Well, it's not currently because you guys had annexed in the city. 00:07:30
And in order to go through the HUD process, they have to be within the city limits. And so now they are. 00:07:38
And now they are going through that PUD process to allow for new. 00:07:43
For a 6 lot single family residential plan unit development, this is Trick Construction. Aaron Sancroft is. 00:07:49
I believe he might have reached out to you, Mr. Crow. 00:07:56
Regarding this. 00:07:59
They will have two off street parking areas per lot. They will have sidewalks and open space and HOA. 00:08:00
The homes are ranging from approximately 1500 to 5000. 00:08:08
As you'll see here. 00:08:12
There's a pretty significant difference. 00:08:14
In one of the houses and then. 00:08:16
400,000 to 1,000,000. 00:08:18
Is the price range so you can see this is the layout of the lot. 00:08:20
You've got the open space there, like kind of at that intersection, which will have a gazebo. 00:08:25
You've got five smaller lots in comparison to the larger lot, which is closer to the lake. 00:08:30
That's probably gonna be your $1,000,000 home, I would assume. 00:08:38
These are the elevations for each of the homes. 00:08:43
And then just that gazebo, which they're going to mimic the towns of North River Gazebo. This was unanimously recommended for 00:08:47
approval in April by Planning Commission. 00:08:51
OK. 00:08:58
And then Next up we have. 00:08:59
This is what you guys were just. 00:09:00
Talking about grandstand, so grandstand is. 00:09:02
Request. You know they're requesting the table for one week so we will table it. But just a history on this as you guys have 00:09:06
clearly asked. 00:09:10
They are a restaurant with an attached bar. Currently they came forward as a gap or to get approval for a gastropub. 00:09:15
At an occupancy of 375, which is what their occupancy limit is currently. 00:09:22
Which was denied by you guys. 00:09:27
Because of such a large occupancy, there was some. 00:09:30
Some concerns there from Chief. 00:09:33
And. 00:09:36
After that they then. 00:09:37
Have been operating for a while, but they also wanted to come in and maybe reduce that occupancy to 200 as the limit. 00:09:40
But be a gastropub. 00:09:46
They decided to pull that request, so that's why you'll never really heard that one. 00:09:47
I think it might have got introduced but was withdrawn. 00:09:52
And then? 00:09:55
Now they are coming back. 00:09:56
In a week to request to be a bar. So not a gastropub to be a bar. 00:09:58
With the 200, so initially this request currently that's being tabled was at the 375. However, Mr. Raji is here and we've spoken 00:10:05
with him and we're going to get together with chief. 00:10:11
He's open to. 00:10:17
Actually possibly going back to that 200 occupancy and opening up that dialogue. So we're going to. 00:10:18
We're going to kind of talk about it a little bit more before getting it to you y'all next week and we'll update you on what that. 00:10:23
What that looks like. OK. And a bar is permitted there, right? It with y'all approval. Yes Sir. 00:10:28
It's not. 00:10:34
As a conditional preclude, it's not. 00:10:35
No, the zoning allows it through a conditional use. Yes Sir. 00:10:38
So we won't go through all that. 00:10:43
Because you guys are familiar. And then this is crew lounge, so this is that other alcohol license you all were. 00:10:45
I'm going to look at today. So this is a hookah bar down 69. SI believe Luby's? Was that the? 00:10:51
The previous restaurant. 00:10:57
In that shopping center. 00:11:00
So they are. 00:11:03
Requesting to be a hookah bar with limit of 21 and up. 00:11:05
And they would all also offer food, so they'll have a a kitchen. 00:11:10
68 is their occupancy, it was their occupancy previously I believe and that is not changing with this new use per fire. 00:11:15
They are going to be open for hours operation 12:00 to 2:00 AM on Sunday and then Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and 00:11:24
Saturday. 00:11:27
6:00 to 2:00 AM. 00:11:31
And they will also be serving food during those times. 00:11:32
So it'll basically be a hookah bar with food and alcohol. 00:11:36
And up 21 and up. 00:11:40
That's essentially what they're asking for. 00:11:41
She frankly spoke to me about this. 00:11:47
Did you have a comment? 00:11:50
Right now, just from the public safety aspect from what we look at as a whole. 00:11:57
We don't feel like we can sustain. 00:12:04
An additional bringing some folks in. 00:12:07
For just another another club. 00:12:10
We're we're at a point now. 00:12:13
Public safety wise. 00:12:14
Now when we have closing times, the area of Skylands already has been a problem. 00:12:16
With crowds leaving. 00:12:21
The boars. This one's going to be down 69 SA little bit, I know, but. 00:12:22
The Clark crowds leaving out, they're actually we have businesses call us about. 00:12:26
You know, we have to close our doors because we got 80 people just showed up in our parking lot. 00:12:30
We're spending up to an hour plus on some of these nights to Patriot. 00:12:34
Period. 00:12:41
The Hillcrest. 00:12:41
Hillcrest Center. 00:12:43
Hillcrest Center. 00:12:45
Ohh. 00:12:47
Just from previous experience, the last lounge license that was in that location didn't turn out very well. 00:12:48
I know it's been probably 20 years ago, but. 00:12:56
Those. 00:12:58
New Orleans flavor in the corner over there. 00:12:59
That that didn't turn out real well. 00:13:03
A parking lot to me after riding around it and looking at it and from previous history there. 00:13:05
There's some safety concerns about where. 00:13:10
Folks can grew up out of sight. 00:13:13
And honestly, now, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we're pulling our officer corps out of the neighborhoods. 00:13:17
And also businesses to. 00:13:23
Basically chase down entertainment. 00:13:25
Disturbances and problems that go on for the majority of the morning. 00:13:27
So we don't have people to keep. 00:13:31
There, there it would. It would. 00:13:35
We won't be able to monitor it. 00:13:37
I may not. 00:13:39
And it's not not just this particular location, but just overall. 00:13:45
The late night entertainment industry, it's, it's, it's, it's it's at a breaking point with us as far as being able to provide a 00:13:48
level of security for the community at large that we really. 00:13:53
Feel comfortable with. 00:13:57
I just don't. 00:13:59
Cheap, likely, and I talked about it and. 00:14:00
I know this feels like a redundant. 00:14:04
Message that I'm delivering everything council recently. 00:14:06
We are forced to believe it. 00:14:10
And. 00:14:13
I am very worried. We're stretching our Police Department way too thin on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. 00:14:13
It's being used against us in recruiting and. 00:14:21
The more establishments wherever we add and expand. 00:14:23
We are going to be calling. We're becoming a de facto security company for them. 00:14:28
And it's taking its toll. 00:14:33
So I hope you will keep that in your calculus as you. 00:14:35
Here this is nothing against the. 00:14:38
I don't nothing against the boron and nothing. 00:14:41
Do we need to adopt A? 00:14:43
You know, as we get on mega developments. 00:14:45
That we need to adopt A moratorium. 00:14:49
On any additional places because. 00:14:52
I would actually prefer. 00:14:55
Like a blanket. 00:14:58
Policy. 00:14:59
It it gets tricky dealing with. 00:15:01
This one, That one, Not this one, because it's more, but OK. This one even that's. 00:15:04
That's the problem. 00:15:10
That up. 00:15:12
Appleseed. 00:15:13
And and I say this every time. 00:15:14
But. 00:15:17
We don't have any police presence. 00:15:18
Presence in my dish. 00:15:20
And it's not your fault. 00:15:23
We just don't have it. 00:15:25
Yeah, had a neighborhood meeting E Park last night. Sibo was saying just that. Same thing, like. 00:15:27
They're gonna start having. 00:15:33
It's basically hold. 00:15:37
But it's residential neighborhoods that are not. 00:15:38
Getting the attention that he can see, both said that they need. 00:15:41
And he's going to make sure they get it now. But. 00:15:44
Part of it the the complaints and the neighbors that were there, and it was a nice crowd too. 00:15:47
Was that? 00:15:53
We're putting our resources on this strip. They're not being seen out of Crescent Ridge Rd. for example, and that's the 00:15:55
perception. 00:15:58
That's a perception. Perception is reality. Yeah, yeah. And then when you know. 00:16:01
Because they don't have, you know. Yeah. 00:16:10
At some point. 00:16:17
Committee. 00:16:19
A fuller discussion about this city has grown tremendously. Our growth is also matching the time where less and less people want 00:16:22
to be police officers. This is a nationwide phenomenon. 00:16:29
We're and and again I know I said it just a few seconds ago but our competition in the county in North Port. 00:16:37
We tackled pay, we've had to take on cars, we're going to be tackling our SA. 00:16:45
But the one thing we can't tackle is. 00:16:50
Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. 00:16:53
On top of it used to be just game days, but now it's just y'all. See the significant reports. 00:16:55
I'm very concerned. We're stretching our people really, really thin and. 00:17:03
It may be I I don't know what how that looks. I don't know what powers we have legally in that realm. 00:17:09
But I think it warrants at least a discussion to put ideas on the table. Never hurts to discuss. 00:17:15
Well, I know I get calls every weekend about speeding on Harbor Rd. E 15th St. E wanting me to have somebody. 00:17:21
Put the police out there. 00:17:30
And I basically tell them there's not any place to put out there, it's. 00:17:31
We have. 00:17:37
We've tried to become as efficient as we can with the manpower that we have when we target targeting things as is as well as we 00:17:38
can, but as far as the old days of being able to say, hey, we got a traffic complaint in this area and a car go out there and sit 00:17:42
for a couple hours. 00:17:46
It's just it's it's not a service that we can provide anymore, regretfully. 00:17:50
Thanks to service that there are some definitely some areas in town that they need that type of service and we just those those 00:17:55
are some of the services we just don't have the manpower of the time to do and based on call volume work the way municipal 00:18:01
government finance should work theoretically and again this is this is you know I can't give you exact numbers but residential. 00:18:07
You would cost one to four ratio. 00:18:14
So whatever taxes are generated, you're getting four times the amount of service. 00:18:17
Inversely though, commercial is supposed to be the 414 to one benefit. 00:18:22
You know, they're they're getting four times the services of the taxes that you're paying and that's why commercial has always 00:18:26
been seen as paying the bills. 00:18:29
If you just isolated. 00:18:33
The How many bars we have in Tuscaloosa 30. 00:18:36
For all restaurant bars. Well, no, not restaurant bars. This is Lee St. 00:18:39
I think it was 29 bars, Being COVID would just liquor licenses. 00:18:46
Really. But then let's add another 15 or 20. Let's say that are restaurant bars. 00:18:51
That form into that, let's say you're dealing with a population of 50 total. 00:18:56
I would think at this point the services that we're providing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. 00:19:02
To the entire population, and I know that's not all. 00:19:07
Would either me or exceed? 00:19:10
The taxes being gained from them. 00:19:12
And then that didn't even put in the calculus. 00:19:15
When we have issues up in Skyrim we have issues and Aleka place or snow, we need to draw some in park wherever. That was why the 00:19:18
main topic was last night. 00:19:24
So. 00:19:31
I think of you and Miss Howard, not to put you on the spot, but I think we need to have a further discussion of this because we 00:19:32
have grown tremendously in the city, which is a good thing. 00:19:36
But. 00:19:42
We had we were struggling to maintain a police force. 00:19:43
With the number of vacancies. 00:19:47
I didn't mean to to hijack this. No, no, Because it was. I mean, like I said, that's what. 00:19:50
The meeting we hadn't Maccabee Center last night. The neighborhood and Sibo put it out really well, that. 00:19:55
You know. 00:20:01
We've got to get back to doing what we can with what we have. 00:20:02
And spend more of the resources in the neighborhoods. 00:20:06
That are having the problems and the. 00:20:08
Constant. 00:20:11
So. 00:20:13
Do we have enough time to like see what a? 00:20:14
Moratorium could look like so that we could because I mean if if this is. 00:20:19
The recommendation then I I would like to make sure that we're following the recommendation, and I know that we are, but. 00:20:24
I just feel like, you know, it would help if we just had one blanket way to determine whether something we should do and then the 00:20:30
community would also know that too automatic. 00:20:34
I agree. I would like attorney Will. 00:20:41
We need to produce that. 00:20:43
Got it. 00:20:45
I don't like being in the business of picking and choosing. They can. They can't. 00:20:47
Let's. 00:20:52
Either its own or it's off. 00:20:53
So we have it on the next public. I mean if I have a couple ideas I've asked actually since we've been sitting here with my staff 00:20:55
to start researching it. I know there is a public safety committee on the 27th. If that's timewise worked for you all, we can we 00:21:00
can have you some good ideas. 00:21:05
If it's all right with, yeah. 00:21:10
So OK, yeah. So is this horrible tonight or just introduction? 00:21:14
This is for a vote. 00:21:17
Tablet. 00:21:21
I would like to say excuse me. 00:21:22
I'm very sorry to interrupt. I'm Bradley Gibney. I'm representing my clients with Brad LLC. 00:21:25
And the other I understand your position. I fully appreciate the police and what all they do. 00:21:31
Could I have it just a moment to? 00:21:39
Speak about a couple of your concerns about this particular location. 00:21:41
Well, what? 00:21:45
Wouldn't the hearing tonight? Yeah, appropriate place you're going to be here tonight. 00:21:46
Before the vote, I mean, yes. Well, I think we're going to tell you we're not going to vote tonight, I feel sure. 00:21:51
Give him a chance to, Yeah, absolutely. 00:21:56
So just just to let let let everybody know my I've got one of the members here Andrea Campbell. 00:21:59
And her and the other members are all. 00:22:06
In law enforcement and have been, I think Andrew's been in it for 14 years. She completely understands. 00:22:09
And wants to make sure they make follow the law and make sure that there aren't any issues. 00:22:15
As it relates to security and the police. 00:22:21
They intend to have somebody working the door at all times, as well as to have security inside and on on Fridays and Saturdays. 00:22:24
Intend to hire additional security and or. 00:22:32
Off duty police officers to work that the the parking area. 00:22:36
And and I say that as as. 00:22:41
Security or so it's not that that that that we're going to put try to put an additional strain on police, but. 00:22:43
If if that's available then they will do that. If not then they will go and and hire outside additional outside security. The 00:22:50
other issue is. 00:22:54
This has been presented as a lounge for one reason, because we're trying to follow the rules with the ABC. 00:22:58
In order to be a restaurant, you have to have so that you have at least 51% of food sales. 00:23:05
We think that we're going to have that. 00:23:11
But. 00:23:14
I don't know. Abundance of caution we're being. 00:23:15
We decided to move to a lounge license. 00:23:18
In the event that it doesn't reach that 51% every month. 00:23:21
So we're gonna And this isn't just a. 00:23:25
Cheeseburger or wings, that kind of thing. This is. 00:23:28
Lamb chops. This is high end food. 00:23:31
That they spend, it's my understanding couple of other locations spend about 50% more on through than they do on alcohol. 00:23:34
So this is not intended to be a lounge per se. This is intended to be a restaurant that serves alcohol. 00:23:42
And. 00:23:48
But just out of abundance of caution, making sure we follow the rules. 00:23:49
We are. We are. 00:23:52
Applying for this as a as a lounge license. 00:23:55
And I will say this one last thing. 00:23:58
That. 00:24:01
We're also going to be a part of the responsible vendor program. Andrew has already taken the class and we're going to be and and 00:24:03
all the other owners and the employees will be doing the same thing. 00:24:07
So what they are doing? 00:24:12
I believe above and beyond of what they should be on trying to make sure that this is not. 00:24:15
Ohh your typical lounge where it's going to put additional. 00:24:20
You know, problems on on the Police Department. 00:24:25
Thank you. 00:24:29
OK. 00:24:30
Thank you. 00:24:30
Alright, and we got one more item for you guys. This is for introduction, but can be adopted following unanimous or with you by 00:24:34
unanimous consent following introduction. 00:24:39
This is a. 00:24:44
80.5 acre annexation. 00:24:45
Located on Old Colony roads, this is across from I think It's Crimson Care or Crime. 00:24:48
It's that new facility off of Old Colony. 00:24:53
A pretty large piece of property there. 00:24:56
Rabin Northridge. 00:24:58
Currently vacant today. They want to come in with that backup. Yes all. 00:25:02
Yeah. 00:25:09
Crimson crossing Ohh just crossing so everything's Crimson and. 00:25:09
This. 00:25:14
I don't see crossings. Where is this normal? 00:25:15
Ohh going up ohh colony toward public like public is there to right. 00:25:18
There's your memory assisted living. That's. 00:25:24
Yes, Sir. 00:25:27
That's that's the middle school. 00:25:29
Yep. 00:25:31
So the Buddy Power billion. 00:25:32
Turn right. 00:25:35
Public property across street has been developed. What's the plan? 00:25:37
So that assisted living, yes. 00:25:41
Yeah. 00:25:44
I'll keep going, sorry. 00:25:45
The plan, I don't recall exactly what the amount of homes was, but yeah, yeah, it's and there's some townhomes mixed in, I think 00:25:49
24 townhomes. There's a open space kind of Greenway in between. 00:25:55
They are actually. 00:26:02
Planning on putting a light in as well. There will be a light on that road. 00:26:03
Where the intersection is, that is directly across from that assisted living facility. There's some commercial to commercial lots. 00:26:09
Directly on Old Colony. 00:26:17
And then they're going to have some. 00:26:19
Stub streets to the South for future development for that property as well. 00:26:21
Quick question, I saw this the other day. 00:26:28
Reminded me to ask the question. 00:26:30
What do our regulations say about width of sidewalk? 00:26:32
So yes, the I believe we would require a four foot sidewalk typically however. 00:26:36
When working with the applicants on their design, they were open to an 8 foot shared multi multi use path. 00:26:43
To mimic kind of what's already there on North Ridge Rd. 00:26:51
OK. Because on the other side where the? 00:26:54
So that's like a four foot. 00:26:57
Yeah, it's tiny I. 00:26:59
Almost first time I saw it, I thought it was a drainage. I agree. 00:27:01
Yeah, and she go very far. 00:27:06
Yeah, I noticed that, so I. 00:27:08
SO1 Gold and that was that was one of our concerns too was you know you've got this path on Northridge and they were open to 00:27:11
actually. 00:27:15
Uh, there's some kind of wetlands issues and like a drainage ditch over there on the east side. 00:27:20
They're not gonna extend that. 00:27:25
Kind of part of the the PUD approval was they weren't going to extend all the way to the end of their property line. 00:27:28
They were gonna actually extend on to the adjacent. I believe that's the mental health board's property all the way to that 00:27:34
intersection. 00:27:38
With a more multi shared use path 8 feet wide. 00:27:42
To then do that though, right? Yes. Yeah, they'll have to work with the cross. Well, it would be on the path. It would be in the 00:27:46
right of way. So they would be developing that. 00:27:50
And then I wanna make sure I heard you correctly. Is there gonna carry it all the way up to Northridge and Ocala? 00:27:56
They're going to carry it all the way up to North Regional Call. Yes, Sir. 00:28:00
And then you'll go across the. 00:28:04
Like to get on the Pettis Randall? 00:28:06
That little place right there. 00:28:09
I think anywhere in our city we have new development and we have opportunities. 00:28:11
Put down sidewalks, pedestrian way. 00:28:16
Wherever we can work to get a minimum of 6 feet if not 8 feet is. Yeah, I agree. I agree. Yeah, well, I mean, we're going through 00:28:18
that code update process currently says is a good. 00:28:24
Good opportunity to bring that up. 00:28:30
Now go watch your path. 00:28:34
How wide are yours out from the Piggly Wiggly going? They're going to be. Well, it's going to be. 00:28:37
Shared path on one side. 00:28:43
And. 00:28:46
Which is 8. 00:28:47
I think that's him. 00:28:50
Then on the. 00:28:52
Side of it with this is going to be. 00:28:54
I believe 8 feet they are, yeah 8 feet I think is the minimum to where you can have, you can have multi use. So essentially. 00:28:57
8 feet is out there. I hope it's good. 00:29:07
Cortana what? 00:29:12
Did we demand gold? But? 00:29:15
On the. 00:29:18
I'm assuming that's the recommended by the. 00:29:20
Don't ask them. 00:29:25
OK. 00:29:28
Alrighty, everybody good with. 00:29:30
Is that? 00:29:32
So. 00:29:36
Alright, Mayor Meadows. Yes Sir. I know we're behind a little bit. I'll, I'll try to move quickly. First I want to recognize Chris 00:29:38
Megs our new. 00:29:41
Executive director of Environmental Services I know, I saw. 00:29:45
Chris Chris knocked the interview out of the park. 00:29:53
And and I was. 00:29:56
Whoever's idea was mayor, I'll give you credit for it, having some of those employees in here for the interview. 00:29:58
That. 00:30:04
That was one. 00:30:05
We need to maybe think about that. 00:30:05
We did that with the police chief and now we've done that with the SD and it's both times have worked out very, very well. I 00:30:08
appreciate you being part of me. 00:30:11
Well, and one thing, I was really impressed when we went. 00:30:16
To introduce Chris. 00:30:19
To the workers. 00:30:22
It was great to say it was unanimous. 00:30:24
But I also had. 00:30:26
Several. 00:30:28
3. 00:30:29
He asked workers that follow me to the door. 00:30:30
And just said that we all want to know how happy we are. 00:30:33
That he was selected so. 00:30:36
That makes me feel good. 00:30:38
You spend a lot of time trying to. 00:30:40
Recently on this as well so. 00:30:42
I'm excited about what he's going to bring. We're trying very we're trying not to over. 00:30:45
You know, inundate him with information right now because we want him to. 00:30:50
Get to know the operations. Build a rapport with our men and women there who work hard every day. 00:30:54
And then we'll build up from there. But I'm excited about what he's going to bring and y'all know Chris, if you need anything, 00:30:59
please reach out to the second is or we're releasing the majority of our town hall schedule for the summer and fall. I think we've 00:31:03
got a slide. 00:31:08
Or we'll have one. There it is that we'll have up tonight as well. 00:31:13
The first one, we're going. We had so much fun at Jax last year with Mr. Bell. We're going back. 00:31:16
That'll be a 7:00 AM. 00:31:22
30 That's an early riser. 00:31:25
Get the coffee and biscuit crowd there. 00:31:29
Bob at the Plaza at 5:30 PM. 00:31:32
Saturday, July 22nd, Mr. Crows District 8:00 AM. 00:31:36
Monday, August 28th at 5:30 PM and Catch Taste and Mr. Tyner's district. We're finalizing with the school system Mr. Lanier and 00:31:40
Miss Howard on Skyland and T CTA. So once we have those times and dates. 00:31:47
We will get that to you. They're all come and go events. They're there. 00:31:55
That just gives people a chance to come in. That's what's been successful over the years. And so we'll be there to answer any 00:31:59
questions that you may have. 00:32:02
And that's all I have is present. We will have two. 00:32:07
Items for executive session. 00:32:10
One of them made to take a little bit of time. OK, I want to go get the other one. 00:32:12
All right. Thank you, Mayor. 00:32:17
Porsche. 00:32:20
And make them introduce themselves. Good idea. Good afternoon, council and mayor. 00:32:32
Have. 00:32:39
Two big things that I want to announce today. First of all, your 311 team is Sweet 16. Today. It's our 16th birthday. 00:32:40
So. 00:32:48
We have been celebrating all day. I brought birthday hats for the team but they won't wear them. 00:32:49
And when Scott came to see us earlier, I had mine on and I forgot. And when I realized I had it on after you left, I was like, I'm 00:32:53
sure he thinks he doesn't know what's going on here, but I just wanted to just love on them publicly. I have such a great team. 00:32:58
You all know that I'm new, so. 00:33:04
I'm still adjusting and they have made it so. 00:33:09
So seamless for me. Jennifer has been here since the beginning. I'll let her introduce herself like me. 00:33:12
Hi, I'm Jennifer Simmons in lock, Portia said. I have been here since. 00:33:19
May. 00:33:23
Of 2007 when 311 was introduced and. 00:33:24
We've heard nothing but good things with the mayor's idea. 00:33:28
And then we have a sale. 00:33:33
I'm Michelle. 00:33:37
I've been here for 13 years. 00:33:38
In February. 00:33:40
Recently reclassified as a senior call taker as well as will. He's on vacation this. 00:33:45
So. 00:33:50
He's playing hooky a little bit, but. 00:33:51
So I have 4 seniors now and I just I just wanted to take a moment to just say out loud how wonderful they are and to acknowledge 00:33:53
them all today. 00:33:57
I try to do this as often as I can, but it's it hits a little different today because it's our birthday, so I just want to 00:34:01
encourage everyone to just. 00:34:04
Popeye, if you can say hi to everyone today, Mayor's already been by. Thank you for coming. 00:34:07
And yeah, I just. 00:34:12
They're great and I just wanted to say it out loud. 00:34:13
We have two. 00:34:22
Latoya as well. 00:34:23
Yes. 00:34:25
The member as well so. 00:34:26
And that makes them. That makes a big difference because I mean I. 00:34:28
I'll be talking to these two. 00:34:31
Hundreds of times she told me that Porsche told me this morning code enforcement, ESD and animal control. 00:34:35
So that's what we're getting, that's the leading calls recently. 00:34:42
Yeah. 00:34:46
That's true. 00:34:47
Hey, Brandy. 00:34:49
Doing. 00:34:51
Alright. 00:34:54
So keeping me on track, I'm trying. So we have two board appointments that we need to discuss today. The first one is going to be 00:34:55
Historic Preservation Commission. 00:34:58
We have Doctor David Nelson, who's from expired back on May 31st. 00:35:03
He's requested to be reappointed. He was initially appointed back in 2009. Keep in mind HBC members, our mayor nominated and 00:35:08
council appointed, he has been serving very well. 00:35:13
The team wishes to have him reappointed, so if it's OK with you guys, we'll have that ordinance on next week. 00:35:18
Force that he has been killed. 00:35:25
Man. 00:35:28
That sounds good. And then the next one is community service programs. 00:35:31
You guys go back with me a couple weeks. We discussed one recommendation that they had. 00:35:35
At the time, they have since then requested to withdraw their recommendation and have someone else for you guys to consider. If 00:35:40
you take a look in front of you, you'll have a resume for Miss or Doctor Marion. 00:35:46
What is it? 00:35:53
And you got a brief little. 00:35:55
Little information about her history. The board would like to move forward with her because of her advanced knowledge or advanced 00:35:58
knowledge of all of the mental health. 00:36:03
Systems throughout Alabama. They think that she would be a very. 00:36:08
Helpful member to the board, if that's OK with you. 00:36:12
I can't imagine well. 00:36:16
I don't. I mean, I I was, I was kind of hoping that. 00:36:18
We could open it up. 00:36:23
Two weeks or anybody would be interested in working community service programs to apply. 00:36:25
That's what we've done in the past. 00:36:30
And I know we, you know, directors. 00:36:32
You know, I I just have a problem with one name is being sent because there's so many people and nothing to get stopped. Mr. 00:36:36
Rosenzweig, she's wonderful and known her. 00:36:40
Many, many years but. 00:36:44
I think it's only right to give. 00:36:46
Others and opportunity, at least. 00:36:49
I'll probably. 00:36:51
I mean. 00:36:53
I plan to vote for Marianne, but let's. 00:36:54
Yeah, put it out there. See what comes in. Is that OK with you all? 00:36:57
They're OK. 00:37:01
Or if y'all wanna just go with her. 00:37:03
I'm happy with with her, but I mean, I'm, I'm OK. 00:37:06
I'm, I'm OK. I mean, she's an impressive resume, so I mean, she'll probably. 00:37:11
I mean, I'm in favor of her, but we want to open up. 00:37:17
Yeah, yeah. 00:37:21
I mean, they're they're both wonderful people. I'm just saying that. 00:37:22
You know. 00:37:25
Sometimes just one name is from a. 00:37:27
I'd like to see more. 00:37:31
What is? Just go with it then. 00:37:35
Emotions No. No. 00:37:38
OK. 00:37:40
All that's happening might be good to move on. 00:37:41
Yeah, we're going with Doctor Rosenstein. Had a lot of issues with this. 00:37:43
Well, I've been a bumpy ride. 00:37:48
Well, it was. It was. 00:37:52
It was. 00:37:55
We're not being talked about. 00:37:58
OK. So we'll have that ordinance on the agenda next week. 00:38:02
I didn't know. 00:38:08
Yeah, so. 00:38:09
I like you, alright. 00:38:11
Alright. 00:38:16
OK, Scott. 00:38:17
Good afternoon, council. Good afternoon. 00:38:20

a total of $22,380.00 a year. 00:38:35

was asking Mr. 00:38:45

we discussed last time, we're going to go ahead and go forward with it today and also have it doubled up. We think we're getting 00:41:09
some. 00:41:13
Some of the movement we're looking for. 00:41:18
On page 31, you'll be authorizing a contract with Blazing Fire and Water. 00:41:20
And declaring a bit long exemption pursuant to Alabama Code 411651 a 15. This comes from Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue. 00:41:26

A topic we discussed in executive session. 00:42:08
Ohh OK. 00:42:12
Farm. 00:42:16
Thank you, Scott. You got projects, finance, admin, no properties. I did speak with Chief Wilson. 00:42:20

Said that they wanted to. 00:42:33
He's in Ghana right now. He's getting, he's getting ready. He was on the bus going to. 00:42:37
Get ready to spend the night, but and have it be on a safari tomorrow so God wonderfully not plan a camera somewhere in his 00:42:42
