TRIANA, AL (WAFF) -

A proposed strip club that has been the center of debate amongst the community it wants to build in has been denied a liquor license by the town council.

The Triana town council denied the liquor license for the proposed strip club Tuesday in a unanimous vote. Applause could be heard from the gallery of people who came to witness the proceedings.

Dozens of residents came out and voiced their concerns at a public hearing last month. Some talked about their property value dropping, but most spoke about their children's safety. 

However, others had said the revenue could help the town get full time police and fire departments.

Attorney Julian Butler, who did research on behalf of the mayor, presented his assessment to the council Tuesday night - the license should be denied because the applications do not meet the requirements of the alcoholic beverage ordinance.

Among Butler's findings, he said the company listed on the application, Uptowner LLC, did not exist as far as his research was able to determine. No articles of incorporation were included for the company.

He also said liquor license applications require an inspection of a building, and the applicants had no building to inspect.

"You cannot check the background of 'yet to be determined,'" Butler said, to audience laughter.

Residents questioned whether the developers could apply again, perhaps after constructing a building.

Mayor Mary Caudle said the council will explore options for new ordinances that would pre-empt further attempts to open a strip club in Triana.

"You can rest assured, when this is all said and done, there will be an amendment on the city level," she said.
