A controversial restaurant and teen club will reapply for a license Monday from the Augusta Commission.

The new majority partner in Cloud Nine Bar & Grill, Tyrone Davis, of Hephzibah, has applied for an alcohol and dance license at the restaurant, located in the former Shoney’s at 3156 Wrightsboro Road.

Under management by Shalanda Crawford, now listed on the application as a 40 percent partner, Cloud Nine surrendered its license in February after deputies tallied 148 incidents at the establishment, including 15 for underage consumption.

Davis cited a prior violation of the city’s dance hall ordinance on his application.

The commission’s Public Services Committee will decide whether to grant Davis a new license Monday.

In a packed set of agendas that follows the commission’s Masters Week vacation from regular meetings, committees are set to:

• Award a bid to University Health Care System to conduct annual baseline and pre-employment medical exams for firefighters

• Award a $342,425 bid to Blair Construction for a multipurpose court facility at Diamond Lakes Regional Park

• Approve the Augusta Arts Council as the city’s “public art agency”

• Approve the city’s 2013 solid waste collection contract, which may include reducing residential service to once a week

• Discuss, at the request of Commissioner Bill Lockett, about concerns he has about Mobility Transit Services’ contract with the city as it relates to staffing, overtime, discipline and other issues

• Approve repayment of $344,233 in federal Housing and Urban Development funds awarded by Augusta Housing and Community Development to 30901 Development Corp. and East Augusta CDC for activities deemed ineligible

• Approve an agreement with the University of Phoenix for “meeting workforce education goals”

Most of the committee meeting items, which follow a called legal meeting at noon, need approval by the full commission before moving forward.

Continued and abusive

Continued and abusive negative behavior does not deserve any type or reward. This place does not deserve a license nor does any place where an individual is involved that had numerous problems and was caught repeatdly serving alcohol to minors - 15 cases means plenty more were served that were never caught. We need good, respectable business owners who do their best to follow the law and set proper standards not someone who racks up over 100 police calls for service and numerous violations in a short time period.

As long as Ms. Crawford has

As long as Ms. Crawford has any involvement/interest in this business, Augusta Richmond County would be insane to grant even a hot-dog stand license, much less a liquor license.
