ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Two Albany night clubs will stay in business.
Police wanted city commissioners to deny alcohol license renewals for Charlie B's and Club Xscape because they say officers respond to too many problems there.
There weren't enough votes to deny those licenses, Tuesday, and there's an interesting reason why.
City Commissioners held hearings on Charlie B's and Club Xscape last week and voted on their alcohol licenses Tuesday night.
Commissioners Christopher Pike and Ivy Hines abstained, so there weren't enough votes to deny the license renewals. The vote was 3 - 2 not to renew. Without four votes, the licenses will automatically be renewed.
These owners are happy they get to stay in business.
"I very excited about the decision that the city commission came up with today because I really do want to keep my license and I want to continue to do business the way that I am in the city of Albany. I'm looking forward to 2013 being a better year," said Club Xscape Owner Tim Shelton.
"I was happy with it. We've broken no laws or had any code violations so I think they made the right decision," said Charlie B's Owner Frankie Pillman.
Pillman says he has taken proactive steps such as adding security workers and installing surveillance cameras.
He hopes that will be enough to satisfy commissioners so this won't be an issue in the future.
