We have been telling you for two months about the hearing. The city says a board of citizens will decide if the Lubbock police department followed proper procedure when they denied Charles Westlund his operating permit in August.
The Permits and Licensing Board is set to hear the case on Baby Dolls Friday morning. The police department denied the owner Westlund of California his operating permit because he failed to give complete information on his application regarding his criminal history. It was later discovered Westlund has two felony convictions out of California.
"If the permits and licensing appeals board upholds denial for the permit for the new owner, then the business would be closed," said Tom Martin, Lubbock City Councilman. Martin has been following this case closely.
If the board decides the police department did not follow procedure when reviewing Westlund's application, then the city says Westlund could have another chance at filling out a new application.
The hearing starts at 8:00 a.m. Friday at Lubbock City Hall.
