Board 3 votes to revoke Missions license, as police also crack down
The Police Department and Community Board 3 are teaming up against the Mission bar on the Bowery, after a fatal shooting occurred outside the place in September. Saying that the club has also been plagued by other problems, Board 3 recently passed a resolution calling on the State Liquor Authority to revoke the clubs liquor license. Meanwhile, police recently brought a nuisance abatement action against the nightclub. According to Susan Stetzer, district manager of C.B. 3, Mission is fighting the nuisance abatement action which can be used to permanently close a premises in court. Police did not provide information on the nuisance abatement action by press time.
Stetzer said the board passed its resolution recommending revoking the clubs liquor license because they felt a coordinated effort against the club would help and wanted to do their part.
