Staff Mans Vault Concert Ahead Of Council Vote

December 3, 2012, 10:35 PM by Kelly Bartnick

Staff Mans Vault Concert Ahead Of Council Vote
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The party continued on Monday at a Sioux Falls nightclub, even as its liquor license remained in jeopardy.

An East Coast rock group played the club Monday after neighboring businesses complained The Vault's clientele creates chaos.

The Sioux Falls City Council heard both sides during its final November meeting and eventually tabling the vote.

Just one day before the council was scheduled to revisit the issue, The Vault's parking lot was full. Cars also lined the streets and a line of ticket-holders snaked from the front doors through half of the parking lot.

All the cars proved neighboring businesses' first concern that the club holds more people inside than it has room to park outside.

With more than 600 expected to go through The Vault's doors, it appeared the club did make attempts to silence the neighbors' other concerns: policing. Security was stationed at the driveways and on the sidewalks, making sure cars didn't go where they shouldn’t.

Vault management, neighboring hotels and city council members have had two weeks to talk about the issue.

The first time didn't go so well.

"I've had patrons vomiting in the parking lot, the sidewalk, on guests' cars. I've had to go out with buckets of water to wash the vomit so guests don't step in it in the morning," Staybridge Suites Night Auditor Lorri Starr said during the November 20 meeting.

Staybridge Suites and Holiday Inn Express management and employees loudly objected the club's liquor license renewal November 20.

Vault Management said they were doing the best they could.

"The noise levels you have here on a Friday or Saturday are well within the limits of the noise ordinance. You still have it, but it doesn't violate an ordinance," owner Kirby Muilenburg said.

Monday night with more security and fewer cars in neighboring parking lots, questions over whether all the neighbors can get along may be addressed.

The Sioux Falls City Council meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Carnegie Town Hall in Downtown Sioux Falls.
