Residents want Ferndale nightclub shut down

Ferndale residents want a local nightclub shut down after several noise complaints and a recent stabbing incident.

"There is no reason on a Sunday night to have music at 2 a.m. where I can feel it at my house," said Solomon Laman who lives nearby. "That's less than a block away."

It is a noisy neighbor people who live along Hazelhurst Street in Ferndale can do without.

The Glo Nightclub has only been open for a couple of months but for some, that's a couple of months too long.

"Just yesterday on Sunday my neighbor had to call the police because a car was parked right behind her and they had no idea whose it was," said resident  Michael Kruger.

Many residents -  some who were camera shy - complained about the trash, the constant cars and the fights.

Ferndale police are now looking over surveillance video from a stabbing on Tuesday where two men were sliced with a knife and a third got injured with a broken bottle. No arrests have been made yet.

"I understand they are trying to run a business," Kruger said. "But if you can't have a business that attracts people who are respectful, I would rather have you be gone."

The Ferndale City Council heard comments Monday night regarding whether to renew the club's liquor license.

If the council decides against it, a letter will be sent to the michigan liquor control commission paving the way for change on Hazelhurst Street.

"It's like a traffic jam on our street four days a week," Laman said. "Who wants that?"
