Following Monday’s City Council meeting where residents asked Ferndale City Council to do something about multiple issues, Glo Nightclub (located at 22061 Woodward near West Hazelhurst), has had its temporary liquor license suspended pendina a hearing, and has temporarily closed its doors.

Glo had been open since November, but according to Police Chief Tim Collins there had been 31 negative police runs to the establishment, including a fight on March 17 that left two people stabbed and one injured by a bottle.

“FPD worked with the Liquor Control Commission (LCC) issued an Emergency
royal_servicesSuspension Order which suspended the temporary license they were working
under. The bar has been closed down,” said Ferndale Police Lt. William Wilson. “There is a hearing date with the LCC set for April 23.” The hearing takes place at the Michigan Liquor Control Commission Southfield District Office at 25680 W. 8 Mile at 10 am.

When Ferndale Police went to the Glo to serve the order on the owners and impound the liquor, three people associated with the bar were inside. Two of them were arrested on outstanding warrants.

Attorney Aubrey Tobin representing Posh Entertainment explained that Glo had purchased the building from Posh under a land contract and they were currently involved in forfeiture, “so I’m not sure they’re going to last anyway,” he said. Posh operated Posh nightclub and Eden nightclub in that location previously.

Council Chambers were packed Monday as residents came forward with their complaints.Print

Judy Palmer, a resident of West Hazelhurst, said “We’ve got everything from garbage on the street, garbage all around their building that they don’t pick up. I did notice that for three weeks in a row they left this carpet they had out in the snow and they didn’t even move that, it just looked trashy. Traffic has been terrible. I’ve had to call the police every Friday and Saturday night… a whole bunch of people hanging out in the church parking lot, drinking after hours.   The police know all about this, so no surprise to our government or our police – we don’t want it anymore. Finding out they’re in forfeiture puts a smile on all our faces.”

Sara McGregor who lives on College across Woodward has repeatedly called about noise being heard all the way across seed015_kathryn_balcerWoodward. Seventeen people spoke before council with similar complaints.

Todd Flood, attorney representing Glo asked Council to give Glo “the opportunity to cure” and that that they want an opportunity to be good neighbors. Flood said that there was not a stabbing and that Glo wants to “move down the direction of being a restaurant.” He also said valet parking could be brought in. “The power of accusation is always very difficult and this is what’s happening here,” he said.

Chief Collins listed issues including valet parking in the public alley, cars blocking driveways, vehicles blocking traffic on Woodward and Hazelhurst, cigars and condoms through the neighborhood, noise complaints, outside drinking, and the stabbings.
