Centennial Hill's owner can no longer operate business in Montgomery

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The owner of Centennial Hill Bar and Grill, where three people were shot and killed and five others were injured Dec. 28, can no longer operate a business in Montgomery.

Tuesday night the Montgomery City Council revoked the owner's right to operate a business in the city. The owner has also voluntarily turned in her liquor license to the ABC board.

The businesses license expired with the city Dec. 31. The owner didn't attempt to renew or re-apply for the license. A show cause hearing was on the agenda for Tuesday night's meeting, but the owner didn't show up. The council proceeded without her.

Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange ordered Centennial Hill to be closed immediately after the shooting.

Strange said he just got word the business is up for sale. The mayor said he hopes to work with the new owners to use the facility for another purpose.

The city council also took action to raise the age of entrance at certain establishments in the city that sell alcoholic beverages.

Under state law 19-year-olds can enter those establishments. Councilman C.C. Calhoun proposed an ordinance to raise the age to 21. The council voted unanimously to pass the ordinance.

The mayor has the power to veto the council's decision, sign the ordinance or do nothing. Calhoun said he hopes it will go into effect soon.
