SF City Council Renews Club's Liquor License

Bookmark and Share

The Vault nightclub in Sioux Falls will remain open.

After some debate, the Sioux Falls city council decided to renew the club's liquor license.

The issue of the liquor license came up because the council received lots of complaints from neighboring businesses about noise and lack of security.

The council voted seven to one, to approve the license as long as the club makes some serious changes over the next year.

“We can hold their feet to the fire," said Jamison.

Councilman Greg Jamison voted yes to renew the Vault's liquor license, but said this is the club's last chance to prove they can be good neighbors.

"Final written warning to the Vault. These are the things they need to do in order to keep their license," said Jamison.

Changes include reducing the noise level in smoking areas adding additional security to monitor people leaving the club and to help prevent customers from parking in nearby business lots.

The Owner of the Vault and Deuces Casino, Kirby Muilenburg, talked at the meeting and says he's taking these measures seriously.

"We're willing to do whatever we can to be a good neighbor," said Kirby Muilenburg;

Muilenburg said he's even created positions to keep an eye out for any sort of disturbances that take place outside of the club.

"There will be at least one person when we deem necessary as the parking lot is full. If we think there are going to be concerns, we'll send somebody out there and they will be stationed there for the evening," said Muilenburg.

Councilman Jim Entenman said he appreciates the changes that have been made by the club so far, but will be asking for proof of these changes over the next year.

"The city council is going to request and require that the police and Officer Burns give us updates on a periodic basis to see that we are conforming to promises that the Vault has made," said Entenman.

His colleague Jamison agreed and said come next year, if the Vault doesn’t uphold the promises, severe action could be taken.

"Then we have grounds and we have opportunity to take their license from them," said Jamison.

For now, the club is getting a second chance.

One of the big issues that still remain is parking, there's not enough to accommodate club goers and the city will be looking into this problem to try and find a solution.

The Vault's license will be up for renewal one year from Tuesday.
