Liquor license application for topless club pulled

By By JAN GRIFFEY / Niles Daily Star
NILES -- Developers of a proposed nightclub which would feature topless dancers in Niles Township have withdrawn their application for a license to operate the facility and a public hearing set for Monday on the issue has been cancelled.
Bill Myers, Niles Township supervisor, said representatives of TSK Inc. withdrew its application late Wednesday afternoon.
Niles Township officials had scheduled a public hearing for Monday to gather public input on the issue. Because of the number of Niles Township residents expected to voice opinions at the hearing, township officials planned to hold the hearing in the Carlson Lecture Hall at Brandywine High School.
At a township meeting on May 5, more than 100 Niles Township residents overflowed the Niles Township Hall. No one at that meeting spoke in favor of opening of the strip bar.
Myer said if the developers submit another application for approval of a Michigan Liquor Control Commission License, a public hearing will be rescheduled.
Notice of that hearing will be published in the Niles Daily Star 10 days prior to its scheduled date.
Teresa Kreighbaum, 26551 Hampton Woods Drive, Elkhart, Ind., and John Gould, 18755 Saddle Ridge Road, Granger, Ind., have proposed opening at 2622 S. 11th St., Niles, a bar and restaurant with a dance area featuring burlesque shows with topless male and female dancers.
The two are represented by attorney Robert N. Feldman of Niles.
Myers said he expects the Indiana pair will re-submit their application at a later date.
