Albany--  An Albany businessman says he can't understand why city commissioners refuse to give him an alcohol license.

Tuesday night, commissioners voted 4 to 3 for a second denial of Tommy Charles Green's license. He planned to open the Red Velvet Lounge and Bar on South Madison. He was surprised when his first application was turned down last month after neighbors complained about potential noise.

At a denial hearing Tuesday night, Green gave commissioners a petition with 160 signatures in support of his effort and a promise to soundproof the establishment.

"Code enforcement along with the city attorney said that I should be open and that I passed all the background checks and all the proximity requirements with all the other businesses that run with the Red Velvet Bar and Lounge so therefore I was a little shocked that they actually denied me the first time," said Green.

Code Enforcement Director Mike Tilson told commissioners Tuesday night that noise is not defined as a reason to deny an application.  Code enforcement recommended approval for the alcohol license.
