Brookhaven, GA, July 13, 2017 – The Post Reports — The City of Brookhaven says they will revoke the alcohol sales license for Medusa Restaurant and Lounge that operates out of Northeast Plaza on Buford Hwy. According to a City spokesperson, notice was given to Medusa on July 11th telling the business their alcohol sales license will be revoked in 15 days.
The City says they have cited Medusa for several violations of city code and state and federal law, including employing unlicensed individuals to provide security services, allowing those unlicensed personnel to carry firearms, possessing modified firearms, and failure to report criminal activity at the business location.
“It is in the interest of the public’s safety and well-being that Medusa’s alcohol license is revoked,” said Brookhaven City Manager Christian Sigman in a statement. “Clear violations of city and state law that pose a danger to the residents and businesses of Brookhaven have occurred at this establishment.”
As with any business in Brookhaven that has their alcohol license revoked, Medusa’s owner has the right to appeal the revocation to the City’s Alcohol Board within 15 days of the notice to avoid closing the business. The City says the appeal hearing must happen with 30 days of the appeal.
