FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 17, 2006
Balanca's hearing postponed until June 29
The Regulated Industries Division of the City of Kansas City, Mo., Neighborhood and Community Services Department agreed to postpone the revocation hearing for Balanca's, a popular tavern near 18th Street and Grand Avenue, from May 18 until June 29. The request originated with Balanca's attorney.
"We agreed to postpone so the State could consider what, if any, action they would take in their informal hearing with Balanca's owner and management," said Judy Hadley, manager of the Regulated Industries Division.
The City sought to revoke Balanca's license for failing to maintain an orderly place (violation of City Ordinance Section 10-36) and disorderliness, indecency or obscenity (violation of City Ordinance Section 10-332).
