Well, it took me a bit, but I finally found a link showing the media covering the certificate of use suspension in the mainstream media. This article even got the reason people are upset partially correct!
Lisa Bilski, the owner, didn’t like the idea of a background check and a $100 charge for another city-issued license.
True, both of those are reasons why people are upset, but if the $100 charge was the issue, there wouldn’t be a group of businesses up in arms over the certificate of use.
The background check, along with the loss of due process, and the discriminatory method that the city uses to cherry pick which businesses are covered by the real issues.
All of that said, I’d like to issue a congratulations to my old friend Jeff McEntee, who was recently hired by the city to join the police force. He must pass a six month training program, but I know he can do it. He has always wanted to be a cop since he was a kid, and now he is finally getting a chance to live his dream. It’s great to hear we’ll have more cops are going to be out on the street. Lord knows this city needs it.
