SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) -
(05/27/14) - A business that was closed by the city of Saginaw more than two months ago because of a shooting near that business, appeared to be open this weekend.
Terry's Place and Club Neutral were not open to the public, but its management team says it's time for the city to make a decision on its future.
The sign outside Terry's Place and Club Neutral said the party was for family members only, but it did attract some attention from the public and the police.
Terry's Place and Club Neutral, two nightclubs in Saginaw not far from the police department, are still closed. The city revoked the business license for both nightclubs after four people were injured in a shooting outside the club in February.
A hearing was held on March 11 to hear arguments between the city and the businesses' managers to see if the nightclubs could reopen. So far, no decision has been made.
This weekend, even though the sign outside Club Neutral said 'Sorry, family only,' a manager of the club, Andrico Jones, says people were lined up outside wanting to get in.
Police also arrived to see if the business opened up illegally, but Jones says there were no problems.
Jones says he is upset the businesses are still closed and has had trouble getting answers from the city on when a decision will be made on if Terry's Place and Club Neutral can reopen. We've learned talks between attorneys on both sides have not come to an agreement.
We were not able to get in touch with a city official to comment on when or if Terry's Place and Club Neutral will reopen.
