City suspends Balanca’s liquor license for 45 days
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Regulated Industries Division of the Neighborhood and Community Services Department and Balanca’s, a tavern, have agreed to a 45-day liquor license suspension. Balanca’s is located at 1809 Grand Ave.
The suspension will begin Oct. 8 at 6 a.m. and end Nov. 23 at 3:00 a.m. The suspension is the result of multiple City ordinance violations, which include minors being allowed inside the business and not maintaining an orderly place, which involved a homicide that occurred within the immediate vicinity of the business. During the suspension, the business will be closed.
As a condition of the suspension, the managing officer of Balanca’s has agreed to take action to prevent such violations from occurring in the future and to provide education, training and instruction to the tavern’s employees about City ordinances.
For more information about this suspension, call Gary Majors, Manager of Regulated Industries Division, at 816-784-9020.
