GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — The booze battle between a Geneva business owner and the city continues after the city denied the owner her liquor license — again.
QB’s Sports Bar and Grill owner, Tina Miller, was denied at last night’s Geneva City Council meeting — 3 no’s and one abstained.
The owner has been alleging unfair treatment and discrimination after she believes the city and police department are holding a June incident in her business regarding a Black employee over her head.
The police department says they caught the employee smoking marijuana inside the restaurant and it resulted in a large drug bust.
Miller says she still didn’t get a clear reason why it was denied and she wanted to come to an agreement with the city in her fight for a liquor license.
She asked if they could block off the church parking lot that’s next door or put a rule in place about keeping the church lot and immediate area clean.
She says she wouldn’t let customers carry out alcoholic beverages.
When she asked what she could do about getting a license, she said the mayor told her to move but he wasn’t specific.
Zoning changes to the alcohol ordinance for businesses were also approved.
Miller says her fight for a license will continue with her legal team.
