Order. 00:00:00
It's good to see everybody and. 00:00:00
Is there a motion we approve the Minutes Second motion second. All in favor. Say aye. Minutes approved. It's chunky. 00:00:04
Yeah, first. 00:00:11
1500 Fallen Blvd. 00:00:20
Supposed to be here today. 00:00:25
What's going on? 00:00:31
These comments. 00:00:34
They haven't made any progress forward, retired or anything. 00:00:36
What? What? Where did we last touch this? What was? 00:00:40
Not that my mind's not sharp as attack, but. 00:00:44
And I know this was here. 00:00:48
With us? 00:00:50
Couple of two or three months ago, what? 00:00:51
What took place? 00:00:53
They were supposed to get a fire. 00:00:55
What a bar. 00:00:58
To my knowledge that they were there conditions that we we put on it or somebody else put on it. 00:01:00
Not much. 00:01:08
We've got we've got an update. 00:01:09
You'll go ahead and yeah, ohh. 00:01:12
Before we get there, let me ask you this question. 00:01:16
When? 00:01:18
Or when we looked at this. 00:01:20
If I remember correct, Richard Harwood. 00:01:24
And Bill McGuire came up before the council. 00:01:27
And we had asked them to remove that canopy out of the right of way. 00:01:30
At stake. 00:01:35
And. 00:01:37
And Bill came before us and said they would do. 00:01:39
Well, what they? 00:01:42
We're supposed to do so, I think hopefully. 00:01:43
I mean, I don't like anybody's happy with what the way this looks, right? No, they that they did. 00:01:47
Some work on it and then there was a contract in place to sell the property. 00:01:52
My understanding from a conversation I had with Mr. White yesterday and and this morning. 00:01:57
Is that the deal fell through? 00:02:02
Because the the potential buyer. 00:02:06
There were a lot of other expenses and for whatever reason he decided we're not going to do this. So Mr. White. 00:02:09
Called me yesterday. 00:02:16
And asked if we would consider. 00:02:18
Tabling this for 60 days. 00:02:22
Uh. 00:02:25
There's a there's plans right here that. 00:02:25
He delivered the name. 00:02:28
To build something. 00:02:30
And what I told Mr. Wyatt and I wish he was here. 00:02:32
Was, I think, the patience of the Council. 00:02:37
And the cities run pretty thin on this. 00:02:40
That if we did decide to grant an extension. 00:02:42
He's talked with a with. 00:02:45
I. 00:02:47
Construction company. 00:02:48
The builders, the builders group is going to look at this. 00:02:50
And what we've been asked is would we consider tabling this for 60 days? 00:02:54
My personal opinion, I would make the motion to do that and I've talked to present timer. 00:02:58
Couple of y'all about this but. 00:03:03
I think there has to be something substantial done with this. 00:03:05
In the next 60 days. 00:03:10
Because I I don't think we can do this and keep kicking the can down the road because it's a huge. 00:03:12
Assorted city. 00:03:16
But I think there needs to be some definitive movement. 00:03:18
Towards something that's satisfactory. 00:03:21
Hopefully in under 60 minutes. 00:03:23
I I don't know if you know what. Yeah. What what? What do you think? I mean, I I hope you all support that. Well, that's all Mr. 00:03:26
White, too. And you know, I I was really favoring more 30 days. 00:03:30
But. 00:03:35
Because. 00:03:37
I want to see something in 30 days. 00:03:39
And. 00:03:42
Mr. Grows really well. There he is right there. 00:03:44
The man of the hour. 00:03:47
Hey, how you doing, Charles? 00:03:49
Perfect. 00:03:52
I want you to address council, but I told them kind of what had happened, But then. 00:03:55
We were asking for a 60 day. 00:03:59
The extension or 60 day tabling of this. 00:04:03
That you were in the process of hiring? 00:04:06
Contractor, I've got the plans right here that were there. 00:04:09
And I don't know what else you want to say to the Council. 00:04:13
Excuse me some time, I'll go get it. 00:04:17
I know it's been it's been a long time. Well, it's been a it's a lot of it was out of. 00:04:20
Control, you know, early years. Yes Sir, I know and I I realize that. And so it was really something that. 00:04:26
Nothing could really be done, you know, because of of circumstances. 00:04:34
But now that you have you got a contract Charles with the Builders Group now or? 00:04:39
OK people here tonight. 00:04:47
Wrong. 00:04:50
OK, OK. 00:04:53
I don't want to be on TV. 00:04:55
After all. 00:04:57
It's candy cane around this place. 00:05:02
Yesterday, and I think you understand that. 00:05:05
Table it for 60 days. There needs to be something that happens to it, Yeah, so that's. 00:05:08
I'm afraid it won't. It won't be extended again. I told you that yesterday. 00:05:16
Anybody have any other questions for Mr. Wyatt? 00:05:21
No, but I think 60 days. 00:05:25
It's been a long time, Mr. Why 60 more days is not going to be. 00:05:28
Then the world. 00:05:33
I'm I'm OK with 60 days. 00:05:36
And. 00:05:39
Alright then. Get out of here. Yes, Sir, you can. You may leave. 00:05:40
Thank you. Good to see you again. 00:05:45
OK. That's a good timing. 00:05:49
Ohh OK. 00:05:57
Is that all you had today? OK. 00:05:58
So we don't know if Brock will be here tonight or not show a city. 00:06:02
OK. 00:06:07
They would not. 00:06:09
Ohh dear. 00:06:13
OK, we're going to hear from Senator. 00:06:14
That is the 60 days. 00:06:17
Would be good enough for him to get estimates. 00:06:20
OK. 00:06:23
Not much of it being in it, but. 00:06:25
They will be making progress, OK? 00:06:28
Thank, thank you. Thank you. 00:06:32
All right, Mr. Mills. 00:06:36
Alright, good afternoon Mayor and Council. We have two applications tonight. 00:06:46
The first one is for Snack group LLC. 00:06:51
DBA Sunshine Food Mart one. 00:06:54
They're going at 4822 Skyland Blvd. East. 00:06:56
Apply for retail beer off premises and retail table wine off premises. 00:06:59
This location was approved early in the year, but they missed the deadline required by the ABC board. 00:07:03
So they have to come back before council again for approval. 00:07:09
That's gone. Yeah. Yes, Sir. Yeah, right there. 00:07:13
OK. 00:07:17
All right. 00:07:19
And. 00:07:19
My second application is for Lupe Takir Takura Mexican Food LLC for local Lupes at 2370 Jack Warner Parkway. 00:07:21
They're applying for a restaurant, retail liquor, so the new establishment being built. 00:07:29
Where? 00:07:35
Right on the corner, right here on that pit bottom pitch. 00:07:36
OK. Just haven't driven down that road in so long. 00:07:40
Yes, at the bottom lip. Yes, Sir, the bottom. Yes, at the bottom. 00:07:46
Right where you were. Yes, Sir. 00:07:50
Go up farther. 00:07:52
Right. 00:07:56

People don't understand. 00:08:02
At last two months. 00:08:05
What are they going to do? They're going to be a restaurant? Yes Sir. 00:08:08

Now. 00:08:15
Exactly. 00:08:16
OK. 00:08:19
Is that all? Yes, Sir. Thank you, Sir. 00:08:21
Mayor Maddox, two quick things. One is we have our next town hall meeting this coming up Friday. It's going to be. 00:08:25
Bob at the Plaza, and we suspect it may. 00:08:33
It'll only be about 100 degrees before we get started. 00:08:36
But looking forward to that Mister Busby and I last year we had a great turn out, so hopefully this year. 00:08:40
Will be near the, I think to the north of the stage. 00:08:46
So looking forward to that, we had a great town hall meeting in Mr. Bells district where. 00:08:51
He always turns out the constituents. 00:08:56
Yeah, all I have to do is say the mayor's going to be there and they show up this goods and coffee. It really was a lot of fun and 00:08:59
get to solve a lot of problems, so I enjoyed that. So looking forward to. 00:09:04
Upcoming town hall meeting. 00:09:10
The other thing that I do have before the Council is actually. 00:09:12
We don't need any action, but I I would like some grace. 00:09:16
If you would be willing to grant it. 00:09:20
Our summer jobs program again has been extremely successful. In fact, it's so successful. 00:09:22
We have 12 young people who are on a waiting list who we've we've exceeded. We wrapped $100,000. 00:09:28
To enroll, the 12 additional young people would be another $24,000. 00:09:36
Lipari and I talked about this yesterday. 00:09:43
I would like to go ahead and ask TS who is administering the summer jobs program. 00:09:47
I don't want to hold any young person out if we we've got twelve additional young people who want to go to work and want to be 00:09:53
part of it. 00:09:56
I'd like to authorize it, but that would mean coming back with a budget amendment at some point in the next few weeks. 00:10:00
So I wanted to get your feeling on that. I I would suspect you would agree. Let's do it. 00:10:07
But at the same time, I came asking to move forward with the about some assurances. 00:10:14
You would be OK because we would have to get a probably a contractual agreement and certainly a budget and so you're only going to 00:10:19
have to be able to work about five or six weeks. 00:10:23
Regarding Mr. Powell. 00:10:29
You know, Mr. Mayor, I remember last year I was and I I think I was out of town. 00:10:32
Cause I wanted to suggest to the Council. 00:10:37
To move that that 100,000 to 200,000. 00:10:40
That I know that I was out of town. 00:10:45
Ohh. 00:10:47
During that time, but I think it would be great for us to. 00:10:48
Swallow. 00:10:54
It's and it's more than just pay. It's it's part of a comprehensive education program. The Job Training Finance Committee would 00:10:56
be. 00:11:00
Fun with hearing. 00:11:04
An amendment I would like. 00:11:05
TES. 00:11:08
You come in and briefly. 00:11:09
I mean. 00:11:11
I don't think. 00:11:12
I'd like to come in and brief, like on to come in and brief started and I'm wrong. Mr. Howard started yesterday. 00:11:16
So if we could. 00:11:23
Get green light. The young people could join tomorrow and. 00:11:25
So the Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. 00:11:32
This. 00:11:34
24. 00:11:37
We can get started. 00:11:39
And. 00:11:41
We can catch up. That's before I told The Perry Let's go do it and let's send the ship out of the Bay. 00:11:41
That's just wanted. 00:11:48
To make sure it would be fine on Finance Committee agenda. I don't think it would have a problem. 00:11:49
I would like TES. 00:11:54
To come in and brief the program and and it would probably be the 11th, but would you have a problem with me? 00:11:56
OK. 00:12:03
And if it were voted down, cash is a PayPal. 00:12:05
We're gonna go ahead and get those, get the young people in. 00:12:12
And I think last year we were all moved by the ceremony, which was. 00:12:15
Jackson came. 00:12:20
Thank you. That's all I have. OK. 00:12:23
Yeah, that's right. 00:12:26
Alright, any department comments? Anyone in the room have anything they'd like to address? 00:12:30
Staff wise. 00:12:36
Okie doke. 00:12:38
Mr. Holmes, good afternoon council. Good afternoon. 00:12:39
I will pick up down here on about the middle of page two of your agenda, where on page 18 and 19 you'll see be suspending the 00:12:47
approval of conditional use applications for bar slash Taverns. 00:12:53
In gastropubs this was discussed in Public safety on the 13th. 00:13:00
On page 20 through 21, Mr. Hall, yes. 00:13:04
Can you address? 00:13:09
I know you and I talked a little bit about concerns I've got about. 00:13:11
What this affects and what this does not? 00:13:14
So. 00:13:18
If this is voted on tonight. 00:13:19
What will this actually? 00:13:23
The A moratorium. 00:13:25
Ohh. 00:13:26
And then is there any type of? 00:13:28
If something, if there's something that comes up that. 00:13:31
We haven't discussed would we be able to. 00:13:34
To review something else or or or if someone brings something to us in the moratorium, how would that work? Well, so so kind of 00:13:37
the the overarching always out there answer is this, the suspension of these applications, that process could completely end with 00:13:42
four votes of this council. 00:13:47
And so if all of a sudden somebody comes forward with something that would be that wouldn't be able to go forward during this time 00:13:53
and everybody says, hey this is something that looks great, we didn't have this in mind. You could absolutely end this the the 00:13:58
current end date is December 31st. 00:14:02
But at any point a Council member could put it on. 00:14:08
Put on council and four votes would would end it. 00:14:12
This is not a moratorium on a bar. You can't do one on a specific area. You can't do one on on a number of of. 00:14:14
Because I think the issue has been overcrowding. 00:14:23
It is some of these higher numbers. 00:14:25
You can't codify that. 00:14:28
Either. 00:14:30
Why you're not talking about capacity, capacity wise? 00:14:31
You certainly could and that's one of the the reason for sort of the pause of allowing additional new bars is for staff. And we've 00:14:35
been meeting public safety, planning everybody else to figure out the the best method to attack that over over a series of months 00:14:41
versus trying to run up with with one one piece at a time for you. 00:14:48
OK. 00:14:57
Because I think just by informal discussions with. 00:14:58
So many council people members who have called. 00:15:02
I think. 00:15:06
The closing hours. 00:15:08
Or something that definitely seems to be. 00:15:10
The consensus of. 00:15:14
Will. 00:15:15
Yes, Sir. 00:15:16
I believe the closing hours are going to be addressed on the 18th and Mr. Field. 00:15:18
OK. 00:15:24
One of the things that also this does on the public safety side, I know capacity has been a big issue, but it's also like where a 00:15:24
BBQ place, whether it's a residential area or close to that. So it's just not about the mega bars, it's also about the placement 00:15:29
that's doing more background. 00:15:33
And that's why we we wanted the the moratorium on so we could be have more discussion whether it's a large bar or small bar. 00:15:38
There's just more thought. We have a we have a process that kind of goes and say, hey, we're going to follow this process every 00:15:45
single time. 00:15:48
So it's not just about the Megas, it's also about placement and slowing it down a little bit, saying, hey, let's make sure we're 00:15:51
doing everything right. 00:15:54
She this recommendation came really out of the council's discussion? Yeah, because of your concern about. 00:15:57
You know, saying this bar versus that bar. 00:16:04
And wanted something to provide some space. 00:16:07
To give that space in terms of square feet, but space in terms of time. 00:16:10
To develop more comprehensive policies to deal with. 00:16:15
Occupancy or, you know, density. 00:16:20
And other safety measures that could help take this incredible burden that is growing on TPD. 00:16:25
And so. 00:16:33
We we embrace that as a team thinking this, this actually would give us. 00:16:35
A chance to take a deep breath in. 00:16:39
And give you more time to. 00:16:42
Address it comprehensively. 00:16:44
I hoped. 00:16:48
Yeah, I'm going. Sure. 00:16:49
I don't think. 00:16:57
I think we've got major issues. I don't. 00:17:00
Hide behind that. 00:17:03
I voted that way. 00:17:04
But. 00:17:06
I don't believe we're being inundated right now with Barr's application. 00:17:08
If we're, if, if there are. 00:17:13
Why can we not look at each one of those on the merits and have these discussions and say this is 1 country, that if we do a 00:17:16
moratorium? 00:17:20
Yes, this this came out of a discussion with with council I believe in in pre council back about a month ago. 00:17:27
In. 00:17:35
And council requested my office prepare this. Initially was going to prepare it for public safety today, but we did it two weeks 00:17:36
ago. 00:17:39
And my understanding at the time was that council stated that that council didn't want to. 00:17:42
Didn't want to be calling, so I know that. I know that was my. 00:17:47
My position, and it still is I I do not want us, I do not want me, and I would prefer not us. 00:17:52
To get in the business of picking and choosing, it's a losing game. 00:17:59
Let's. 00:18:04
Let's stop the bleeding. Let's let's put the tourniquet on, take an operational pause, take a step back, see what we're going to 00:18:07
do to to. 00:18:11
Buffet the police force and get that back in where it needs to be. 00:18:16
And then we can open that spicket back up. My my hope would be that we do not get in the picking and choosing business and in the 00:18:20
apartment. 00:18:25
Deal. You know we're. 00:18:29
I can promise you, here's how the math works. 00:18:33
Five 50s equals 1250. 00:18:36
I mean, whether it's apartments, bars or whatever else we put a moratorium, something else. 00:18:39
Currently, how many potential? 00:18:45
Establishments do we have that are waiting to come before us. We don't have, we don't have anybody in the pipeline that I'm aware 00:18:47
of that's. 00:18:51
There, there's no, there's no painting there. I don't know if there's something with Tony's office or with economic development, 00:18:55
but we don't have any bars or Taverns pending right now. 00:18:59
Floods. Over the past two months we've had an influx of a lot of bars wanting to do capacity and that's what kind of. 00:19:04
Through all this, we have so much going on and he had all these bars coming in. It was like, hey, we've got to have a better 00:19:11
method. 00:19:14
Of doing this, you know from staff point of view. 00:19:17
Like I said, y'all council will do what y'all say. 00:19:20
It's just the thing that we're concerned saying, hey, look, we need to evaluate this a little better and slow the process down to 00:19:23
make sure we quality things where they need to go. 00:19:26
Because otherwise. 00:19:30
It is just. 00:19:31
It's a lot. So how there's an element of messaging they get involved in this too. We need to change the message. 00:19:33
That we're sending out this is not. 00:19:39
I'm bored. 00:19:42
Free for all, I agree with my good friend. 00:19:45
Councillor buddy, but I will say this. 00:19:48
Anybody. 00:19:50
Training. 00:19:52
Do anything? 00:19:54
That is happy. 00:19:56
Would be. 00:19:58
Probably slightly in sunny. 00:19:59
If they think they're going to come up here and get a blanket. 00:20:01
Approval for anything? 00:20:05
Especially in certain parts. 00:20:07
But. 00:20:09
I mean, listen, I'm. 00:20:11
Own concern. 00:20:12
So it's not and I get what we're trying to do, but I. 00:20:13
I still have a lot of concerns about what this. 00:20:16
Yeah, well, if we have a moratorium. 00:20:18
And the staff comes up with a good idea or plan that we all like. 00:20:21
The 1st of September we can end the moratorium. The 1st of September. True, we we don't have to go to December 31st. 00:20:25
But I think it'll be a lot better to come up with some. 00:20:33
Overall plan. 00:20:36
If they're not having to deal with. 00:20:37
Any individual situation I agree with John. I would hope it would be sooner rather than later. I do want to. 00:20:39
Add that. 00:20:46
This first discussion came up, I think, on Tuesday and June 6. 00:20:47
You had a draft ordinance by Friday, June 9th that I emailed to you. 00:20:53
I just. 00:20:58
You know, we certainly think, you know your discussions. It was important because I I do fear you will get into that. 00:20:59
They can be choosing that. I know you felt with the crew lounge down 69 S and felt that. 00:21:07
Kind of puts you in a bad position and I think this this could help but. 00:21:12
As Chief said, we will do. 00:21:17
Whatever you advise us to do. 00:21:19
It's currently it's set to January. December 31st would be the end date. 00:21:22
Yes, Sir. No action by council. It would end then. It could end sooner. It could be extended. Whatever for? 00:21:27
Yes, Sir. 00:21:33

It's good to see everybody and. 00:00:00
Is there a motion we approve the Minutes Second motion second. All in favor. Say aye. Minutes approved. It's chunky. 00:00:04
Yeah, first. 00:00:11
1500 Fallen Blvd. 00:00:20
Supposed to be here today. 00:00:25
What's going on? 00:00:31
These comments. 00:00:34
They haven't made any progress forward, retired or anything. 00:00:36
What? What? Where did we last touch this? What was? 00:00:40
Not that my mind's not sharp as attack, but. 00:00:44
And I know this was here. 00:00:48
With us? 00:00:50
Couple of two or three months ago, what? 00:00:51
What took place? 00:00:53
They were supposed to get a fire. 00:00:55
What a bar. 00:00:58
To my knowledge that they were there conditions that we we put on it or somebody else put on it. 00:01:00
Not much. 00:01:08
We've got we've got an update. 00:01:09
You'll go ahead and yeah, ohh. 00:01:12
Before we get there, let me ask you this question. 00:01:16
When? 00:01:18
Or when we looked at this. 00:01:20
If I remember correct, Richard Harwood. 00:01:24
And Bill McGuire came up before the council. 00:01:27
And we had asked them to remove that canopy out of the right of way. 00:01:30
At stake. 00:01:35
And. 00:01:37
And Bill came before us and said they would do. 00:01:39
Well, what they? 00:01:42
We're supposed to do so, I think hopefully. 00:01:43
I mean, I don't like anybody's happy with what the way this looks, right? No, they that they did. 00:01:47
Some work on it and then there was a contract in place to sell the property. 00:01:52
My understanding from a conversation I had with Mr. White yesterday and and this morning. 00:01:57
Is that the deal fell through? 00:02:02
Because the the potential buyer. 00:02:06
There were a lot of other expenses and for whatever reason he decided we're not going to do this. So Mr. White. 00:02:09
Called me yesterday. 00:02:16
And asked if we would consider. 00:02:18
Tabling this for 60 days. 00:02:22
Uh. 00:02:25
There's a there's plans right here that. 00:02:25
He delivered the name. 00:02:28
To build something. 00:02:30
And what I told Mr. Wyatt and I wish he was here. 00:02:32
Was, I think, the patience of the Council. 00:02:37
And the cities run pretty thin on this. 00:02:40
That if we did decide to grant an extension. 00:02:42
He's talked with a with. 00:02:45
I. 00:02:47
Construction company. 00:02:48
The builders, the builders group is going to look at this. 00:02:50
And what we've been asked is would we consider tabling this for 60 days? 00:02:54
My personal opinion, I would make the motion to do that and I've talked to present timer. 00:02:58
Couple of y'all about this but. 00:03:03
I think there has to be something substantial done with this. 00:03:05
In the next 60 days. 00:03:10
Because I I don't think we can do this and keep kicking the can down the road because it's a huge. 00:03:12
Assorted city. 00:03:16
But I think there needs to be some definitive movement. 00:03:18
Towards something that's satisfactory. 00:03:21
Hopefully in under 60 minutes. 00:03:23
I I don't know if you know what. Yeah. What what? What do you think? I mean, I I hope you all support that. Well, that's all Mr. 00:03:26
White, too. And you know, I I was really favoring more 30 days. 00:03:30
But. 00:03:35
Because. 00:03:37
I want to see something in 30 days. 00:03:39
And. 00:03:42
Mr. Grows really well. There he is right there. 00:03:44
The man of the hour. 00:03:47
Hey, how you doing, Charles? 00:03:49
Perfect. 00:03:52
I want you to address council, but I told them kind of what had happened, But then. 00:03:55
We were asking for a 60 day. 00:03:59
The extension or 60 day tabling of this. 00:04:03
That you were in the process of hiring? 00:04:06
Contractor, I've got the plans right here that were there. 00:04:09
And I don't know what else you want to say to the Council. 00:04:13
Excuse me some time, I'll go get it. 00:04:17
I know it's been it's been a long time. Well, it's been a it's a lot of it was out of. 00:04:20
Control, you know, early years. Yes Sir, I know and I I realize that. And so it was really something that. 00:04:26
Nothing could really be done, you know, because of of circumstances. 00:04:34
But now that you have you got a contract Charles with the Builders Group now or? 00:04:39
OK people here tonight. 00:04:47
Wrong. 00:04:50
OK, OK. 00:04:53
I don't want to be on TV. 00:04:55
After all. 00:04:57
It's candy cane around this place. 00:05:02
Yesterday, and I think you understand that. 00:05:05
Table it for 60 days. There needs to be something that happens to it, Yeah, so that's. 00:05:08
I'm afraid it won't. It won't be extended again. I told you that yesterday. 00:05:16
Anybody have any other questions for Mr. Wyatt? 00:05:21
No, but I think 60 days. 00:05:25
It's been a long time, Mr. Why 60 more days is not going to be. 00:05:28
Then the world. 00:05:33
I'm I'm OK with 60 days. 00:05:36
And. 00:05:39
Alright then. Get out of here. Yes, Sir, you can. You may leave. 00:05:40
Thank you. Good to see you again. 00:05:45
OK. That's a good timing. 00:05:49
Ohh OK. 00:05:57
Is that all you had today? OK. 00:05:58
So we don't know if Brock will be here tonight or not show a city. 00:06:02
OK. 00:06:07
They would not. 00:06:09
Ohh dear. 00:06:13
OK, we're going to hear from Senator. 00:06:14
That is the 60 days. 00:06:17
Would be good enough for him to get estimates. 00:06:20
OK. 00:06:23
Not much of it being in it, but. 00:06:25
They will be making progress, OK? 00:06:28
Thank, thank you. Thank you. 00:06:32
All right, Mr. Mills. 00:06:36
Alright, good afternoon Mayor and Council. We have two applications tonight. 00:06:46

Apply for retail beer off premises and retail table wine off premises. 00:06:59
This location was approved early in the year, but they missed the deadline required by the ABC board. 00:07:03
So they have to come back before council again for approval. 00:07:09
That's gone. Yeah. Yes, Sir. Yeah, right there. 00:07:13
OK. 00:07:17
All right. 00:07:19
And. 00:07:19
My second application is for Lupe Takir Takura Mexican Food LLC for local Lupes at 2370 Jack Warner Parkway. 00:07:21
They're applying for a restaurant, retail liquor, so the new establishment being built. 00:07:29
Where? 00:07:35
Right on the corner, right here on that pit bottom pitch. 00:07:36

Yes, at the bottom lip. Yes, Sir, the bottom. Yes, at the bottom. 00:07:46
Right where you were. Yes, Sir. 00:07:50
Go up farther. 00:07:52
Right. 00:07:56

People don't understand. 00:08:02
At last two months. 00:08:05
What are they going to do? They're going to be a restaurant? Yes Sir. 00:08:08

Now. 00:08:15
Exactly. 00:08:16
OK. 00:08:19
Is that all? Yes, Sir. Thank you, Sir. 00:08:21
Mayor Maddox, two quick things. One is we have our next town hall meeting this coming up Friday. It's going to be. 00:08:25
Bob at the Plaza, and we suspect it may. 00:08:33
It'll only be about 100 degrees before we get started. 00:08:36
But looking forward to that Mister Busby and I last year we had a great turn out, so hopefully this year. 00:08:40
Will be near the, I think to the north of the stage. 00:08:46
So looking forward to that, we had a great town hall meeting in Mr. Bells district where. 00:08:51
He always turns out the constituents. 00:08:56
Yeah, all I have to do is say the mayor's going to be there and they show up this goods and coffee. It really was a lot of fun and 00:08:59
get to solve a lot of problems, so I enjoyed that. So looking forward to. 00:09:04
Upcoming town hall meeting. 00:09:10
The other thing that I do have before the Council is actually. 00:09:12
We don't need any action, but I I would like some grace. 00:09:16
If you would be willing to grant it. 00:09:20
Our summer jobs program again has been extremely successful. In fact, it's so successful. 00:09:22
We have 12 young people who are on a waiting list who we've we've exceeded. We wrapped $100,000. 00:09:28
To enroll, the 12 additional young people would be another $24,000. 00:09:36
Lipari and I talked about this yesterday. 00:09:43
I would like to go ahead and ask TS who is administering the summer jobs program. 00:09:47
I don't want to hold any young person out if we we've got twelve additional young people who want to go to work and want to be 00:09:53
part of it. 00:09:56
I'd like to authorize it, but that would mean coming back with a budget amendment at some point in the next few weeks. 00:10:00
So I wanted to get your feeling on that. I I would suspect you would agree. Let's do it. 00:10:07
But at the same time, I came asking to move forward with the about some assurances. 00:10:14
You would be OK because we would have to get a probably a contractual agreement and certainly a budget and so you're only going to 00:10:19
have to be able to work about five or six weeks. 00:10:23
Regarding Mr. Powell. 00:10:29
You know, Mr. Mayor, I remember last year I was and I I think I was out of town. 00:10:32
Cause I wanted to suggest to the Council. 00:10:37
To move that that 100,000 to 200,000. 00:10:40
That I know that I was out of town. 00:10:45
Ohh. 00:10:47
During that time, but I think it would be great for us to. 00:10:48
Swallow. 00:10:54
It's and it's more than just pay. It's it's part of a comprehensive education program. The Job Training Finance Committee would 00:10:56
be. 00:11:00
Fun with hearing. 00:11:04
An amendment I would like. 00:11:05
TES. 00:11:08
You come in and briefly. 00:11:09
I mean. 00:11:11
I don't think. 00:11:12
I'd like to come in and brief, like on to come in and brief started and I'm wrong. Mr. Howard started yesterday. 00:11:16
So if we could. 00:11:23
Get green light. The young people could join tomorrow and. 00:11:25
So the Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. 00:11:32
This. 00:11:34
24. 00:11:37
We can get started. 00:11:39
And. 00:11:41
We can catch up. That's before I told The Perry Let's go do it and let's send the ship out of the Bay. 00:11:41
That's just wanted. 00:11:48
To make sure it would be fine on Finance Committee agenda. I don't think it would have a problem. 00:11:49
I would like TES. 00:11:54
To come in and brief the program and and it would probably be the 11th, but would you have a problem with me? 00:11:56
OK. 00:12:03
And if it were voted down, cash is a PayPal. 00:12:05
We're gonna go ahead and get those, get the young people in. 00:12:12
And I think last year we were all moved by the ceremony, which was. 00:12:15
Jackson came. 00:12:20
Thank you. That's all I have. OK. 00:12:23
Yeah, that's right. 00:12:26
Alright, any department comments? Anyone in the room have anything they'd like to address? 00:12:30
Staff wise. 00:12:36
Okie doke. 00:12:38
Mr. Holmes, good afternoon council. Good afternoon. 00:12:39
I will pick up down here on about the middle of page two of your agenda, where on page 18 and 19 you'll see be suspending the 00:12:47
approval of conditional use applications for bar slash Taverns. 00:12:53
In gastropubs this was discussed in Public safety on the 13th. 00:13:00
On page 20 through 21, Mr. Hall, yes. 00:13:04
Can you address? 00:13:09
I know you and I talked a little bit about concerns I've got about. 00:13:11
What this affects and what this does not? 00:13:14
So. 00:13:18
If this is voted on tonight. 00:13:19
What will this actually? 00:13:23
The A moratorium. 00:13:25
Ohh. 00:13:26
And then is there any type of? 00:13:28
If something, if there's something that comes up that. 00:13:31
We haven't discussed would we be able to. 00:13:34
To review something else or or or if someone brings something to us in the moratorium, how would that work? Well, so so kind of 00:13:37
the the overarching always out there answer is this, the suspension of these applications, that process could completely end with 00:13:42
four votes of this council. 00:13:47
And so if all of a sudden somebody comes forward with something that would be that wouldn't be able to go forward during this time 00:13:53
and everybody says, hey this is something that looks great, we didn't have this in mind. You could absolutely end this the the 00:13:58
current end date is December 31st. 00:14:02
But at any point a Council member could put it on. 00:14:08
Put on council and four votes would would end it. 00:14:12
This is not a moratorium on a bar. You can't do one on a specific area. You can't do one on on a number of of. 00:14:14
Because I think the issue has been overcrowding. 00:14:23
It is some of these higher numbers. 00:14:25
You can't codify that. 00:14:28
Either. 00:14:30
Why you're not talking about capacity, capacity wise? 00:14:31
You certainly could and that's one of the the reason for sort of the pause of allowing additional new bars is for staff. And we've 00:14:35
been meeting public safety, planning everybody else to figure out the the best method to attack that over over a series of months 00:14:41
versus trying to run up with with one one piece at a time for you. 00:14:48
OK. 00:14:57
Because I think just by informal discussions with. 00:14:58
So many council people members who have called. 00:15:02
I think. 00:15:06
The closing hours. 00:15:08
Or something that definitely seems to be. 00:15:10
The consensus of. 00:15:14
Will. 00:15:15
Yes, Sir. 00:15:16
I believe the closing hours are going to be addressed on the 18th and Mr. Field. 00:15:18
OK. 00:15:24
One of the things that also this does on the public safety side, I know capacity has been a big issue, but it's also like where a 00:15:24
BBQ place, whether it's a residential area or close to that. So it's just not about the mega bars, it's also about the placement 00:15:29
that's doing more background. 00:15:33
And that's why we we wanted the the moratorium on so we could be have more discussion whether it's a large bar or small bar. 00:15:38
There's just more thought. We have a we have a process that kind of goes and say, hey, we're going to follow this process every 00:15:45
single time. 00:15:48
So it's not just about the Megas, it's also about placement and slowing it down a little bit, saying, hey, let's make sure we're 00:15:51
doing everything right. 00:15:54
She this recommendation came really out of the council's discussion? Yeah, because of your concern about. 00:15:57
You know, saying this bar versus that bar. 00:16:04
And wanted something to provide some space. 00:16:07
To give that space in terms of square feet, but space in terms of time. 00:16:10
To develop more comprehensive policies to deal with. 00:16:15
Occupancy or, you know, density. 00:16:20
And other safety measures that could help take this incredible burden that is growing on TPD. 00:16:25
And so. 00:16:33
We we embrace that as a team thinking this, this actually would give us. 00:16:35
A chance to take a deep breath in. 00:16:39
And give you more time to. 00:16:42
Address it comprehensively. 00:16:44
I hoped. 00:16:48
Yeah, I'm going. Sure. 00:16:49
I don't think. 00:16:57
I think we've got major issues. I don't. 00:17:00
Hide behind that. 00:17:03
I voted that way. 00:17:04
But. 00:17:06
I don't believe we're being inundated right now with Barr's application. 00:17:08
If we're, if, if there are. 00:17:13
Why can we not look at each one of those on the merits and have these discussions and say this is 1 country, that if we do a 00:17:16
moratorium? 00:17:20
Yes, this this came out of a discussion with with council I believe in in pre council back about a month ago. 00:17:27
In. 00:17:35
And council requested my office prepare this. Initially was going to prepare it for public safety today, but we did it two weeks 00:17:36
ago. 00:17:39
And my understanding at the time was that council stated that that council didn't want to. 00:17:42
Didn't want to be calling, so I know that. I know that was my. 00:17:47
My position, and it still is I I do not want us, I do not want me, and I would prefer not us. 00:17:52
To get in the business of picking and choosing, it's a losing game. 00:17:59
Let's. 00:18:04
Let's stop the bleeding. Let's let's put the tourniquet on, take an operational pause, take a step back, see what we're going to 00:18:07
do to to. 00:18:11
Buffet the police force and get that back in where it needs to be. 00:18:16
And then we can open that spicket back up. My my hope would be that we do not get in the picking and choosing business and in the 00:18:20
apartment. 00:18:25
Deal. You know we're. 00:18:29
I can promise you, here's how the math works. 00:18:33
Five 50s equals 1250. 00:18:36
I mean, whether it's apartments, bars or whatever else we put a moratorium, something else. 00:18:39
Currently, how many potential? 00:18:45
Establishments do we have that are waiting to come before us. We don't have, we don't have anybody in the pipeline that I'm aware 00:18:47
of that's. 00:18:51
There, there's no, there's no painting there. I don't know if there's something with Tony's office or with economic development, 00:18:55
but we don't have any bars or Taverns pending right now. 00:18:59
Floods. Over the past two months we've had an influx of a lot of bars wanting to do capacity and that's what kind of. 00:19:04
Through all this, we have so much going on and he had all these bars coming in. It was like, hey, we've got to have a better 00:19:11
method. 00:19:14
Of doing this, you know from staff point of view. 00:19:17
Like I said, y'all council will do what y'all say. 00:19:20
It's just the thing that we're concerned saying, hey, look, we need to evaluate this a little better and slow the process down to 00:19:23
make sure we quality things where they need to go. 00:19:26
Because otherwise. 00:19:30
It is just. 00:19:31
It's a lot. So how there's an element of messaging they get involved in this too. We need to change the message. 00:19:33
That we're sending out this is not. 00:19:39
I'm bored. 00:19:42
Free for all, I agree with my good friend. 00:19:45
Councillor buddy, but I will say this. 00:19:48
Anybody. 00:19:50
Training. 00:19:52
Do anything? 00:19:54
That is happy. 00:19:56
Would be. 00:19:58
Probably slightly in sunny. 00:19:59
If they think they're going to come up here and get a blanket. 00:20:01
Approval for anything? 00:20:05
Especially in certain parts. 00:20:07
But. 00:20:09
I mean, listen, I'm. 00:20:11
Own concern. 00:20:12
So it's not and I get what we're trying to do, but I. 00:20:13
I still have a lot of concerns about what this. 00:20:16
Yeah, well, if we have a moratorium. 00:20:18
And the staff comes up with a good idea or plan that we all like. 00:20:21
The 1st of September we can end the moratorium. The 1st of September. True, we we don't have to go to December 31st. 00:20:25
But I think it'll be a lot better to come up with some. 00:20:33
Overall plan. 00:20:36
If they're not having to deal with. 00:20:37
Any individual situation I agree with John. I would hope it would be sooner rather than later. I do want to. 00:20:39
Add that. 00:20:46
This first discussion came up, I think, on Tuesday and June 6. 00:20:47
You had a draft ordinance by Friday, June 9th that I emailed to you. 00:20:53
I just. 00:20:58
You know, we certainly think, you know your discussions. It was important because I I do fear you will get into that. 00:20:59
They can be choosing that. I know you felt with the crew lounge down 69 S and felt that. 00:21:07
Kind of puts you in a bad position and I think this this could help but. 00:21:12
As Chief said, we will do. 00:21:17
Whatever you advise us to do. 00:21:19
It's currently it's set to January. December 31st would be the end date. 00:21:22
Yes, Sir. No action by council. It would end then. It could end sooner. It could be extended. Whatever for? 00:21:27
Yes, Sir. 00:21:33
That we do. 00:21:36
OK, next on pages 20 through 21, you'll be authorizing and approving the submission of an application to the State of Alabama for 00:21:38
a grant under the 2023 Emergency Solutions Grant Program to provide funds for the Salvation Army, TES and Sand, Inc doing business 00:21:45

On page 24, you'll be authorizing the Director of Arts and Entertainment to enter into a partnership with Canterbury Episcopal 00:22:44
Church for a food voucher program at Tuscaloosa Farmers Market. Again, this is doubled up and will be on CD committee this 00:22:48
afternoon. 00:22:53
The I believe these are vouchers where HUD actually the the through the church. There are vouchers that someone could prevent 00:23:00
present to us at the river market, at the farmers market and ultimately those vouchers would come back and be exchanged for money. 00:23:06
Is that accurate Michael? 00:23:11
What? 00:23:17
Projects. 00:23:19
Oh I'm sorry it's on on projects committee today is that I think this is miss Day's is doubled up in his on on projects I believe 00:23:20

and North River Yacht Club Holdings LLC regarding the transfer and conveyance of the assets. 00:23:38
