==================================================================

News 3 has learned that the City of Savannah has temporarily suspended the liquor license of Club Dosha.

This club has only had it's alcohol license since October 31st and already has met with the city once about problems.

That meeting was back in January when the city had gotten multiple complaints about noise and a large number of people gathering in front of the bar at all hours.

After that meeting with the city, the bar was supposed to come up with a plan of action to stop these problems but the city has yet to see those changes.

The City Manager also says the security measures in the club are not adequate and can cause a lack of control.

That's why after this latest incident happened, she decided to issue an emergency temporary suspension of the club's alcohol license.

Their alcohol license is suspended until the business can show why they should get their license back during a "show cause" hearing.

So far nothing has been scheduled. The earliest the club could appear before council is March 20th

===================================================================
