City Gives Club Second Chance
Monday, 09 August 2010

August 9--  A local nightclub is being given a second chance to clean up its act or face closure.

Chester McLendon, owner of a new club called Club Phoenix on Highway 292 West in Vidalia, asked the city council Monday night to return his suspended business license.

The club was shut down after its first night of operation after police responded to complaints of loud music and found beer and marijuana in the club.  McLendon promised the city to increase security and was given permission to re-open. 

Mayor Pro Tem Raymond Turner told McLendon not to come back to the council if there are further problems with the club.

The council also voted to close Easter Drive near Raymonia Apartments due to disturbances of the peace which prompted residents to ask for city assistance.

In other actions, city Finance Director Bill Bedingfield reported the city has just over $200,000 in delinquent property taxes.  He says names of those who owe taxes will be published in the local newspaper and that property will be sold at public auction in November if the tax bills are not paid.

The city is also extending its contract with Republic Services, operator of Sullivan Environmental Services, for city trash pickup.  The extension is through December, 2011 when a new contract will be be considered.
