Houma nightclub warned to clean up its act
HOUMA - Louisiana's top alcohol enforcement official has warned a downtown Houma nightclub that whether it remains open will depend on how well it responds to public complaints about trash and disturbances.
Alcohol and Tobacco Control Commissioner Troy Hebert on Friday gave the owner of Houma's City Club 10 days to show that he is willing to work to address grievances.
The Courier reports that local business and property owners said they aren't asking that the club be closed. But several complained about the commotion and trash. Owner Mike Fesi Jr. said he is willing to have his staff do more cleaning up and he wants to provide a safe environment.
Police have responded to numerous disturbances at the club, including a shooting outside the club Dec. 23.
