A request for a re-consideration of previous action on a conditional use permit (CUP) for sale and on-site consumption of alcoholic beverages at Smokin’ Aces club met defeat again at the hands of the Mission City Council during their Monday, March 12 meeting. Smokin’ Aces is located 300 feet west of Taylor Road along the south side of Business 83.
In consideration of the number of police calls to the site and a letter from the apartment complex manager next door recounting the grievances of the people who lived in his apartments about the business, the CUP for alcohol use was revoked.
Mayor Beto Salinas was livid that the request was on the agenda. He asked what the Planning and Zoning board said about the return of the request and was told they had not seen the request. The city manager and the Planning Department had placed the item on the agenda at the request of the club owners.
